The first two dashboards show trends in age-adjusted death rates for drug poisoning from 1999 to 2015 by selected demographics. The third dashboard displays a series of heat maps of model-based county estimates for drug poisoning deaths during the same time span.

Around 50,000 people died due to drug-related poisoning in 2015, according to the dashboards.
