Notes:

 See: Drug-related deaths — methods and definitions, the EMCDDA definitions.        

 Absolute numbers from different countries are not directly comparable since differences remain in quality of recording methods.       

 (1) From 2002, the full Selection B has been used.       

 (2) T40.4 code (other synthetic narcotics, which includes mainly dextropropoxyphene) is not included in the Swedish extraction.       

 (3) Here, data for full Selection B is presented. The national ‘Drug Strategy Definition’ is similar to Selection B, but excludes cases with only dextropropoxyphene, dihydrocodeine and codeine.        

 See also 'General notes for interpreting data' on the Explanatory notes and help page.
