Notes:

1. The trends represent the available information on the national number of reports for drug law offences (criminal and non-criminal) reported by all law enforcement agencies in the EU Member States, all series are indexed to a base of 100 in 2006 and weighted by country population sizes to form an overall EU trend; the figures between brackets refer to the total number of offences as reported in 2011 (before weighting).

2. The general term 'reports for drug law offences' is used, since definitions and study units differ widely between countries. For definitions of the term 'reports for drug law offences', please refer to Drug law offences - methods and definitions.

3. Countries with two or more consecutive years and those with a low number of cases, are not included in the trend calculations: the trend lines for cannabis is based on 18 countries (76 % of the EU population 15-64), both heroin and cocaine is based on 17 countries (72 % of the EU population 15-64 respectively), amphetamine on 16 countries (71 % of the EU population 15-64) and ecstasy on 17 countries (71 % of the EU population 15-64).

4. Additionally, where 2011 data are missing (2 cases for all trends) 2010 data are used, and for missing 2006 data (2 case for all trends) 2007 data are used.
