Abstract

The Orange County Unintentional Overdose Mortality Review (UOMR) team has three main goals. These are: 1. Reduce Mortality 2. Examine Treatment Options and 3. Prevent New Users. In support of the first goal, ISBS has analyzed 2020 Medical Examiner data from Orange County to identify demographic differences in fatal overdoses. This information can be used to identify risk factors for fatal overdoses and target interventions that will lead to reduced mortality.

We have conducted analysis to identify differences based on sex, race, and income.
