Parcours des usages de drogues en France : observation et analyse démographique

Abstract : The epidemic of AIDS has implied, in the middle of the 80's, an acceleration of the public politics reorientation towards drugs users. It had permitted the creation of a healthcare system to welcome the drug addicts. Indirectly, it permits to gather some new data sources that had allowed a better knowledge of the drugs uses phenomenon. Nevertheless, uses courses can rarely be studied. Either sub-populations are non-representative of all the drugs users, or the collection method biass the indicators which can be obtained. On one hand we have presented the selection operated on the various sub-populations of drug users and propose the methods of collection with would avoid such selections. On the other hand, we have made, from demographic analysis principles, an estimation measure of the errors induced by survey in the general population to make sure of their eventual good use. It seems that the mistakes are low enough to realize some studies which do not suffer from it to much. It's only with the renewal of this kind of survey that the measures will be improve and convince us. But we are sure that it is necessary to improve the collected datas to understand the dynamic that is involved in the renewal of drugs users sub-populations. It is obvious that several types of drug uses exist, but no data source ables in France to measure the changes from a use type to another.
