This release examines the extent and trends in illicit drug use among a nationally representative sample of 16 to 59 year olds resident in households in England and Wales and is based on results from the 2012 to 2013 Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW).
This release is produced to the highest professional standards by statisticians in accordance with the Home Office’s Statement of Compliance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.
Detailed information about the figures included in this release is available in the User Guide to Drug Misuse: Findings from the Crime Survey for England and Wales.
This release replaces the previous annual Home Office Statistical Bulletins on Drug Misuse Declared. Despite the change in mode of publication, the text and tables are broadly similar.
During this transition a PDF document is provided which will enable users to print out all HTML pages from one source document (all tables are solely available online at the links above).
Future editions of this annual release will be published on dates announced via the UK Statistics Authority’s Publication Hub: Release Calendar.
While responsibility for the Crime Survey in England and Wales transferred to the Office for National Statistics on 1 April 2012, the Home Office has retained responsibility for analysis and publication of Drug Misuse figures.
