Illicit Drug Data Report

Our Illicit Drug Data Report (IDDR) informs Australia’s understanding of the illicit drug threat and focuses collective efforts by bringing together data from a wide range of sources into the one unique report. Now in its 18th year, the IDDR is the only report of its type in Australia, providing governments, law enforcement agencies and interested stakeholders with a national picture of the illicit drug market. The IDDR presents data from a variety of sources and provides an important evidence base to assess current and future illicit drug trends, offers a brief analysis of those trends, and assists decision-makers in the development of strategies to combat the threat posed by illicit drugs.

The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission collects data annually from all state and territory police services, the Australian Federal Police, the Department of Home Affairs, the Australian Border Force, state and territory forensic laboratories and research centres. Illicit drug data collected and presented in the report includes arrest, detection, seizure, purity, profiling and price data.
