Opioid, amphetamine, and cocaine-induced deaths in Australia: August 2018

17 Aug 2018
Description

This bulletin reports on opioid-, amphetamine-, and cocaine-induced deaths in Australia up until 2016, as provided by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) using data from the National Coronial Information System (NCIS). Data for 2015 and 2016 are not final as the ABS applies a revisions process to coroner certified deaths.

A new accompanying visualisation has additional data by jurisdiction. It also reports on drug-induced deaths where amphetamine or cocaine are contributory (capturing where cocaine or methamphetamine contributed to, but another drug caused, death).
