This Bulletin presents the key findings from the fourth drug prevalence survey of households in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Within Ireland the survey sampled a representative number of people aged 15+ from August 2014 to August 2015. Within Northern Ireland a representative sample of persons aged 15-64 years was selected. The survey was carried out according to standards set by the EMCDDA.

Statistically significant changes in prevalence rates between 2002/03, 2006/07, 2010/11 and 2014/15 are presented in the tables and comparisons between 2010/11 and 2014/15 are discussed in each section.
