Figure DRD-5. lndexed trends in acute drug-related deaths and in the numbers of deaths under 25 years old [see all figures in this series...]

Part (i) Changes between 2000 and 2003


The figure for 2005 is provisional, since only 10 countries provided data for that year. The figure for 2005 is based on the countries which provided data for both 2004 and 2005.

Index: 1990 = 100. Numbers of cases per country per year are presented in Table DRD-2 part (i) and Table DRD-2 part (v) in the 2007 statistical bulletin.

Belgium did not provide data for 1998-2005, Ireland 2004-2005. A computation method, defined by the EMCDDA (2001), has been used to make corrections for this situation.
