Global Illicit Drug Trends 2003

This report presents supply and demand statistics and analyses on the evolution of the global illicit drug problem, thus allowing for an objective and up-to-date assessment of the world drug situation. The report is divided into two parts. The first deals with trends in illicit drug production, trafficking and consumption, while the second provides the statistics on which the globally aggregated estimates and trends are based. Most of the information included in this report comes from data extracted from the annual report questionnaire (ARQ) sent by governments to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in 2002 and from supplementary documents prepared by various sources.
