Survey on Representations, Opinions and Perceptions regarding Psychoactive Drugs

The EROPP survey measures the French population's opinions and perceptions pertaining to psychotropic drugs and the related public actions. The 2013 survey was the fourth. The first three were conducted in 1999, 2002 and 2008. This telephone survey was based on a randomly surveyed, representative sample of the French population aged 15 to 75 years. The sample comprised households with a landline telephone (2,200) and people who used mobile phones only (300 individuals). The data were collected between 27 October and 25 December 2012.

The individuals were questioned about their use, their perception of the level of danger to health, their perception of users and public legal and illegal drug policies.
