Data Briefs

Drug Overdose Data Briefs are CDC publications that provide timely information on a specific drug overdose topic. Each report features drug overdose data, and may include information on specific drugs involved in overdoses, overdose trends over time, demographic characteristics of persons experiencing an overdose, and circumstances surrounding overdoses. By highlighting key findings, describing methods used, and including summary text and visualizations to communicate results, Drug Overdose Data Briefs aim to provide readers with easily comprehensible information in a compact publication (PDF) and webpage.
