Focus on Gender – A National Survey of Canadians’ Use of Alcohol and Other Drugs – Canadian Addiction Survey (CAS)

Chapter 1 – Introduction

This report, one in a series of follow-up reports from the Canadian Addiction Survey (2004), presents an analysis of alcohol and illicit drug use with respect to gender.
