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 [Methods and definitions, Drug law offences] in this Statistical bulletin.                        
(2) Belgium: in 1998 and 1999 there is some double-counting as persons reported for two offences were counted twice in the total. From 2000, only the main offence is counted. However, a person could be counted several times if arrested several times during the same year.                          
(3) Greece: between 1985 and 1994, figures refer to a number of arrests made by the police of drug law offenders. From 1995, figures refer to a number of initial reports of individuals suspected of drug law offences by all law enforcement authorities.                          
(4) Italy and Spain: the data only include offences related to dealing/trafficking (offences related to drug use/possession are not considered as criminal offences).                          
(5) Austria: the total number of reports for drug law offences includes reports for drug-related deaths until 1999, and reports for psychotropic substances and precursors since 1998.                          
(6) Italy: from 1985 to 1994, the figures include only persons under restriction. Since 1995, the figures include persons under restriction and at liberty.                          
(7) Portugal: since July 2001, reports for drug use/possession are no longer included in the table since these are not considered as criminal offences anymore.
