Figure 13 Long-term trend in acute drug-related deaths, 1985–2004


New Member States and candidate countries are not included in this figure owing to the lack of retrospective data in most cases.

See Table DRD-2 in the 2006 statistical bulletin for numbers of deaths in each country and notes on methodology.

Ten countries provided information for 2004 and six did not. Therefore, the figure for 2004 is provisional, based on a comparison of 2003 and 2004 data only for those countries providing data for both years.


Reitox national reports (2005), taken from general mortality registries or special registries (forensic or police).
