Figure DLO-1 Drug law offences in EU Member States, candidate countries and Norway, 1999 to 2004 – Part (ii) Drug law offences in new EU Member States and candidate countries, 1999 to 2004 – Indexes (100 = mean 1999 to 2004)


Data between brackets refer to the number of drug law offences in 2004, except for Latvia (2002).

The general term 'reports for drug law offences' is used since definitions and study units differ widely between countries. For definitions of the term 'reports for drug law offences', please refer to Drug law offences – methods and definitions.

Hungary: Data refer to the year during which criminal investigations were closed (vs. year during which offences were committed).

Turkey: 2002 data refer only to Police data, while after 2002 data refer to all data reported by the main prosecuting authorities (Police, gendarmerie, Customs); this change is likely to affect comparability across time.
