Estimated Number of Problem Drug Users in Sweden

Problem Drug Use

"In total, the number of problematic drug users in Sweden was estimated at a rounded of figure of 29,500. This number is not directly comparable to the figures previously derived in Sweden due to differences in both the data sources and the methods used. The national estimate relating to population was 3.2 with the 'all ages' denominator and 4.9 with the 15-64 years of age denominator (see Standard table 7 and 8 for details)."
