Discrepancies observed in drug related deaths are not solely due to differences in the actual deaths due to drugs but also due to certification and coding differences.

The main aim of this part of the project was that through the collection of detailed data on drug related deaths from a number of countries, to further analyse their data in terms of codification practices and the changes in the codes and numbers of reported cases of drug related deaths, before and following the WHO updates in 2002/2003.
