Interactive data: Alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drug use by jurisdiction

Figure 1 includes jurisdictional results on the use of alcohol, tobacco, electronic cigarettes and vapes (‘e‑cigarettes’), and the most used illicit drugs including cannabis, cocaine, ecstasy and hallucinogens.

Questions included for the first time in 2022–2023 without timeseries data available, such as the use of methamphetamine and amphetamine, are not included in Figure 1.
