Drug Poisoning Deaths

Definition:
Deaths resulting from unintentional or intentional overdose of a drug, being given the wrong drug, taking a drug in error, or taking a drug inadvertently.

Why do we measure this?
Drug poisoning deaths can be prevented. Measuring the number and rate of deaths allow public health professionals to determine locations and populations where drug poisoning deaths are the most common.

Data Note(s)
  • ICD-10 Code(s): X40-X44, X60-X64, X85, Y10-Y14
  • The underlying cause of death reported by medical examiners and physicians on death certificates is the source for drug poisoning deaths.
  • These deaths are reported by the decedent's county of residence and year the decedent died.
  • When comparing these data to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) Deceased Persons for Drugs report it is important to know only results of examinations performed by medical examiners are included.
  • The FDLE report provides data by the district and year the examination was performed and may include deaths where drugs contributed to death, but did not directly result in the death.
  • This is primary, quantitative data.
  • Chart will display if there are at least three years of data.
  • Multi-year counts are a sum of the selected years, not an average.
  • Quartiles are calculated when data is available for at least 51 counties.
  • MOV - Measure of Variability: Probable range of values resulting from random fluctuations in the number of events. Not calculated when numerator is below 5 or denominator is below 20, or count or rate is suppressed. The MOV is useful for comparing rates to a goal or standard. For example, if the absolute difference between the county rate and the statewide rate is less than the MOV, the county rate is not significantly different from the statewide rate (alpha level = 0.05). When the absolute difference between the county rate and the statewide rate is greater than the MOV, the county rate is significantly different from the statewide rate. MOV should not be used to determine if the rates of two different counties, or the county rates for two different years, are statistically significantly different.
  • Denom - abbreviated for Denominator.
  • Population estimates are not available for persons whose county of residence is unknown. Given this, the denominator and associated rate are not available.
  • * - Indicates the county rate is statistically significantly different from the statewide rate.
