Drug Misuse Statistics Scotland 2010

Description Welcome to the 2010 edition of Drug Misuse Statistics Scotland - An annual compendium
presenting the latest available information from a range of national data sources relevant
to drug misuse. Data sources include the Scottish Drug Misuse Database, hospital statistics, blood-borne viruses, drug-related deaths, drug-related offences and court proceedings and prison statistics.

Correction of Error
An error in the Drug Misuse Statistics Scotland 2011 publication has been uncovered in Table A1.38.  The impact is that the figures reported for the number of new individual patients/clients by ‘Daily spend on heroin’ and ‘Daily spend on cocaine’ between 2006/07 - 2009/10 were incorrectly reported with identical breakdowns by amount spent. 
Please note Table A1.38 has now been corrected in both the full PDF report and the corresponding excel document.  This revision does not affect the overall interpretation or conclusions to be drawn from the data.
