Notes:

 The national definitions used to report to the EMCDDA and the methods used are described in Drug-related deaths – methods and definitions .       

 For 2005 the index is provisional, computed on the basis of the percentage change in the countries that provided data for both 2004 and 2005.       

 United Kingdom: Only data based on the definition used by Office for National Statistics (ONS) and not the DSD figures are used to compute the indices.       

 (1) Corrected Index: 1985=100.       

 Some countries did not provide data for some years (see Table DRD-2 part (i)). To correct this situation, the computation method used is defined in the report ['European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (2001). Coordination of the implementation of the EMCDDA standard guidelines on the drug-related deaths in the EU Member States, and the collection and analysis of information on drug-related deaths'], Project CT.99.RTX.04, Co-ordinated by the Trimbos Institute. Lisbon: EMCDDA.          

 (2) Corrected Index: 1996=100.       

 Some countries did not provide data for some years ( Table DRD-2 part (i)). To correct this situation, the computation method used is defined in the report ['European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (2001). Coordination of the implementation of the EMCDDA standard guidelines on the drug-related deaths in the EU Member States, and the collection and analysis of information on drug-related deaths'], Project CT.99.RTX.04, Co-ordinated by the Trimbos Institute. Lisbon: EMCDDA.          

 (3) Corrected Index: 1990=100.       

 Some countries did not provide data for some years (see Table DRD-2 part (iii), Table DRD-2 part (iv) and Table DRD-2 part (v)).
