PDF (INCB Narcotic Drugs estimates 2011) - Published Version

The technical data on narcotic drugs are published for control purposes and to meet the needs of researchers, enterprises and the general public. They are based on information furnished by Governments to the Board in accordance with the relevant provisions of the 1961 Convention. The adherence by countries and territories to that Convention and the status of receipt of information (statistics and estimates) by the Board from their Governments are reflected in part two of this technical report.

The publication of estimates is necessary, inter alia, in order to inform Governments of the limits within which international trade in and manufacture of narcotic drugs may be conducted during a given year. The publication of statistical data (part four of this technical report) provides information for analytical purposes, inter alia, on the avail ability and use of narcotic drugs in various countries and territories. The publication of estimates and statistics on production, manufacture, stocks and utilization of narcotic drugs is also intended to furnish producing and manufacturing countries with information on prospective trends, in order to encourage them to adjust their plans in a manner that will enable them to maintain a balance between supply and demand.
