Abstract

The opioid epidemic has had, and will have, long-lasting ramifications in the United States. To better understand its impact in the Northeast Florida, this research seeks to identify relationships between hydro- and oxycodone pill concentration at the county and zip code levels and socio-economic factors such as average adjusted gross income and opioid related mortality. This project utilizes time series, regression, and GIS methods to examine local opioid saturation and has led to the development of an interactive Tableau dashboard which allows users to view opioid saturation at various levels of granularity. This analysis is made possible by longitudinal data collected and released by the Florida Department of Health, the DEA Automation of Reports and Consolidated Orders System (ARCOS), and other public sources spanning the years 2006-2014. In this presentation, preliminary results and analyses from the previous semester are reviewed and summarized.

This project utilizes time series, regression, and GIS methods to examine local opioid saturation and has led to the development of an interactive Tableau dashboard which allows users to view opioid saturation at various levels of granularity. This analysis is made possible by longitudinal data collected and released by the Florida Department of Health, the DEA Automation of Reports and Consolidated Orders System (ARCOS), and other public sources spanning the years 2006-2014.
