Supplementary notes

* The rate is age-adjusted per 100,000 population, age 10 and older.

Hospital stays for conditions partially attributable to substance use (e.g. cancer, strokes, respiratory disease, trauma) were not included. Also, the stigma associated with substance use may influence what is recorded in hospital records and contribute to under-reporting of cases.
