GAP Toolkit Module 2: Estimating Prevalence: Indirect Methods for Estimating the Size of the Drug Problem, was prepared with the support of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime as part of the activities of the Global Assessment Programme on Drug Abuse (GAP). The main objective of GAP is to assist countries in collecting reliable and internationally comparable drug abuse data, in building capacity at the local level to collect data that can guide demand reduction activities, and in improving cross-national, regional and global reporting on drug trends.

Module 2 of the GAP toolkit forms one component of a compendium of methodological guides that have been developed to support data collection activities. Other modules currently under development provide support in the following areas: developing an integrated information system; school surveys; data interpretation and management for policy formation; and basic data manipulation using a statistical software package for the social sciences (SPSS).
