Indiana Drug Overdose Dashboard
An important part of drug overdose prevention efforts is understanding the trends and regional and demographic differences that may exist. Access to data from a variety of sources is key to supporting both state and local overdose response and prevention activities.
The Indiana Drug Overdose Dashboard presents information on drug overdose injuries, opioid prescriptions, and prevention efforts in Indiana. Use the topics in the header to view different types of data related to overdoses at the county and state level. Each topic includes instructions to 'Modify Your View' and view the data from different perspectives. This dashboard represents the most up to date data that the Department of Health has available and is updated shortly after new data is made available.
For additional information on data, definitions, and methods, please review the Drug Overdose Dashboard Data Notes.
Please Note: CDC guidance for the identification of hospital discharges involving drug overdoses was modified in 2019. In accordance, all 2016-2019 Emergency Department Visits and Hospitalizations were refreshed on August 31, 2020 to reflect the updated guidance. Counts and rates are lower than previously reported, due to the exclusion of discharges involving an intent of assault or discharges identified as subsequent encounters. Stats Explorer has also been updated to reflect the new guidance.
