Participating Countries

As can be concluded from the table below, a considerable number of European countries have participated in the ESPAD data collections since the first wave in 1995. The seventh data collection was performed during 2019 and the table indicates which countries that have collected data throughout the years.

To get in contact with the responsible national Principle Investigator, please use the information of the list of principal investigators and contact ESPAD@cnr.ifc.it for contact details

Based in the 2015 Report, there is also a short country summary from the most recent data collection to be found, including a graph showing national key results compared to the average of all participating countries. It was not possible to produce these country summaries in 2019, due to limitation of resources
