Notes:

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.

For Austria, the number of cases were no autopsy was performed in the official number of drug related deaths is included (201 instead of 177).

For Portugal the data is still provisional.
