As part of the 1993 Scottish Crime Survey (SCS), respondents between the ages of 16 and 59 were asked a series of questions about their knowledge and use of controlled drugs and solvents. The results of the exercise provided the first nationally representative estimates of the prevalence of drug misuse experience across Scotland as a whole. The survey was repeated in 1996 and this paper provides an up-to-date picture of levels and patterns of drug misuse and examines changes over the intervening period. A more comprehensive analysis will be published later this year. This will include analysis of socio-demographic and geographic data as well as the age/sex breakdowns reported here.
