espad 07 methodological considerations
ESPAD 07Methodological considerations
  • Taken together, the methodological problems are limited
  • Drug use figures are probably somewhat underestimated
  • Underreporting probably differ somewhat between countries
  • However, unlikely that underreporting differs so much that it effects the main results with clear differences between groups of countries
  • Small discrepancies between countries should be considered carefully
