Today’s map of the day shows the rate of opioid prescription by county for the year of 2013 per 100 persons. From the map we can see many counties within various southern states and some western states, such as Northern California and Organ, have higher rates indicated by the darker brown shading. We can see that some counties had a consistent prescribing rate when compared to the previous year, 2014. For instance, Arizona and Nevada prescribing rate remained consistent when compared to the previous map for 2014.
