Figure DRD-1. Reitox national reports 2006, taken from national mortality registries or special registries (forensic or police). Based on national definitions as presented in 2007 statistical bulletin, methodological notes for drug-related deaths

Notes:

(1) For Czech Republic, EMCDDA Selection D was used instead of the national definition. National definition also includes poisoning by psychoactive medicines, which accounts for most cases (156 cases out of 218) for period 2002-2005, or latest year with available information.

In some countries, the ‘national definitions’ of drug-related death include a limited number of cases of deaths indirectly related to drug use. See methodological notes in the 2006 statistical bulletin.

Although all cases are included in 'N', in some countries not all cases have information on toxicology. The proportions have been computed as valid percentages (see Table DRD-1).
