NDARC Technical Report No. 101 (2000)

The 2000 Illicit Drug Reporting System (IDRS) represents the fifth year of existence for the IDRS, a system designed to monitor emerging trends in illicit drug use and associated problems. It is also the first year in which all methodological components of the system were implemented in each Australian state and territory. The IDRS has expanded from an initial trial in one state (NSW), to providing national data on current drug trends and local issue relevant to each jurisdiction1-19. As such, it is an appropriate time to document the history of the IDRS, and the major trends detected by the system over its first half decade.
