UNODC - United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) publishes the World Drug Report annually. The data in the 2018 Report are mainly based on information provided by the 107 states or territories in the annual report questionnaire (ARQ) between March and December 2017 and that describe the drug situation in 2017. While for Europe (90%) and Asia (63%) the majority of the member countries filed a report, data for North and South America (44%) and for Africa and Oceania (21% respectively) is more incomplete. Lacking or insufficient data have been, when possible, complemented by additional sources.
