Lesson #3 - Visualization and Exploratory Analysis

Opioid Dashboard

In this notebook we develop a simple dashboard with the opioid data obtained from CDC Drug Overdose Dataset (https://wonder.cdc.gov/ucd-icd10.html). The dataset is from the Underlying Cause of Death database contains mortality and population counts for all U.S. counties. Data are based on death certificates for U.S. residents. Each death certificate identifies a single underlying cause of death and demographic data.

From this data we obtained the Drug/Alcohol Induced causes data for 1999-2019 across all counties in US. https://wonder.cdc.gov/wonder/help/ucd.html#Drug/Alcohol%20Induced%20Causes)

Software used:

Goal: To have a user interactive dashboard which displays opioid overdose per capita cases by category of drug use.
