Notes:

The national definitions used to report to the EMCDDA and the methods used are described in <a href="http://www.emcdda.europa.eu/stats13/drd/methods">Drug-related deaths — methods and definitions</a>.

For 2011 the index is provisional, computed on the basis of the percentage change in the countries that provided data for both 2010 and 2011.

United Kingdom: Only data based on the definition used by the DSD figures.

(1) Corrected Index: 1995 = 100.

Some countries did not provide data for some years (see <a href="http://www.emcdda.europa.eu/stats13/drdtab2a">Table DRD-2 part (i)</a>). 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, coordinated by the Trimbos Institute, Lisbon, EMCDDA.

(2) Corrected Index: 1996 = 100.

Some countries did not provide data for some years (<a href="http://www.emcdda.europa.eu/stats13/drdtab2a">Table DRD-2 part (i)</a>). 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, coordinated by the Trimbos Institute, Lisbon, EMCDDA.
