The Opioid Misuse Community Assessment Tool

A tool to assist in better understanding the national opioid crisis and inform effective community conversations and interventions. NORC at the University of Chicago and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s USDA Rural Development created this tool to allow users to map overdose hotspots and overlay them with data that provide additional context to opioid addiction and death - including the strength and diversity of local economies, ethnicity, educational attainment, and disability status of residents.
