Notes:

For each country, the average of valid observations over the observation time (total number of deaths divided by the number of years with data) has been calculated. This average constituted the ‘100 % base’. For each year, the number is presented as a percentage of this average number.

Ten countries provided information for 2011 and six did not. The trends for those countries that provided information can be seen in the figures with trends by country. Belgium provided data for the years 1987 to 1999, 2004-06 and 2008 and Ireland for the years 1998 to 2010, therefore they are not included in the series.

Number of cases per country per year are presented in Table DRD-2.

In some countries, the ‘national definitions’ include a limited number of cases of deaths indirectly related to drug use. See Methodological notes in the Statistical bulletin.

In Spain, for this graphic, the information is provided on the special registry (SEIT), based on six big cities with long-term series.

For Luxembourg, a three-year moving average was used due to the low number of cases.

Based on national definitions as presented in methods and definitions for DRD 'Definitions of acute drug-related deaths in EU Member States', as used in the EMCDDA European Drug Report (EDR) and reported in Reitox national reports.
