MAPS IN THE NEWS:
This map, based on data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, shows opioid-related overdose deaths by county in 2015 (the most recent year for which these data are available). Nationally, the death rate due to opioid overdose more than doubled between 2005 and 2015, to 10.4 deaths per 100,000, but this map makes clear that in some areas the death rate is three and four times higher than the national average. cdn.static-economist.com/sites/default/files/images/2017/03/blogs/graphic-detail/20170311_woc097.png
