=E2=80=A2 Ongoing collection, analysis and publication of data on global=
illicit drugs. Covering a period of more than 15 years, the UNODC database=
contains more than 100,000 entries related to various aspects of worldwide=
illicit drug production, trafficking and demand. The data is collected pri=
marily from the Annual Reports Questionnaire (ARQ) received from government=
s and supplemented by other sources, including UNODC surveys in various cou=
ntries. Thousands of new entries are added every year and an effort is now =
being made to search archives and retroactively expand time series. A data-=
matching system involving UNODC, Interpol and WCO is now resulting in impro=
ved data on significant individual seizures cases.

Taking into account the experience of the International Crime Victim Sur= vey (ICVS) and the EU International Crime Survey (EUICS), UNODC aims at sup= porting courtiers to implement internationally comparable crime victim surv= eys. It promotes the UNODC-UNECE Manual on victim surveys and provide techn= ical support to requesting countries.

Based on previous business surveys (International Commercial Crime Surve= y, 1994-96 and International Crime Business Survey, 2000) and within the fr= amework of the recent cooperation agreement with the UN Industrial Developm= ent Organization (UNIDO), UNODC has produced a questionnaire and methodolog= y for international standardized Crime and Corruption Business Surveys (CCB= S). The questionnaire addresses bribery/ corruption, fraud, extortion and s= everal forms of crime, which impact on business and industry. Pilot surveys= were conducted in 2005/06 Bulgaria and Canada with small samples of busine= sses. Results were analyzed in view of further refining the methodology, as= sessing the average length of interviews, and addressing any problems encou= ntered (language, sensitive issues, etc...).=20
