Prevalence and patterns of drug use among the population, measured by probabilistic surveys of the adult and school population, is one of five key indicators that assess the drugs situation in the country. The use of common tools and methodology in such surveys leads to comparable data across Europe.

EKTEPN has been actively involved in the EMCDDA experts group working to compile guidelines for general population surveys since 1997. The guidelines provide a common research protocol and a questionnaire, recommended for use by the Member States in their national general population surveys, in order to ensure data comparability across Europe. In the nationwide survey conducted by the UMHRI in 2004, the methodology and the questionnaire used was fully harmonised with EKTEPN's general population survey indicator.

EKTEPN also reports data derived from UMHRI surveys to the European Union Databank on National Population Surveys on Drug Use.
