Butler County Overdose Data Dashboard

Suspected drug overdose emergency department admissions analyze how many individuals visited a Butler County facility for an unintentional drug overdose.  Suspected cases are excluded if the overdose incident was intentional, the individual was less than 10 years old and if the incident was related to a medication dosage error. 

The fatal overdose spike threshold is determined by using an exponential weighted moving average analysis of overdose surveillance data sent by the Coroner's Office.  The threshold is adjusted weekly to account for recent changes in weekly overdose totals by also giving more weight to recent data observations.
