Specific Type of Drug-related Deaths from External Causes*
Note: Alcohol or drug related deaths include deaths with alcohol or drug as underlying causes as well as contributing factors to the death. Alcohol-related deaths are based on codes that are 100% attributable. Drug-related deaths are based on codes for unintentional poisoning, intentional self-poisoning, homicide, and mental and behavioural disorders due to the use of drugs. Please note that due to varying coding criteria and methods, numbers for alcohol and drug-related deaths may differ from other publications.
Note: * These are chemicals found at the time of death upon toxicology screening at autopsy. It makes no judgement if these are for legal or illicit drug use.
Note: Each of the types of drug-related deaths are not mutually exclusive; there may be the presence of other drugs in addition to the specified drug.
Note: The default feature of the tool excludes Non-BC Residents from the provincial counts by region of residence. To include Non-BC Residents, select the option under region. All deaths including those among Non-BC residents are included when selecting by region of death.
