Maryland’s Overdose Data Dashboard
Our Overdose Data Dashboard illustrates recent fatal and non-fatal overdose trends in Maryland. Data from 2022 and 2023 are preliminary at this time and are subject to change.
Fatal overdose data by demographic group are now available on our new Demographic Dashboard! This new, companion dashboard shows fatal overdoses by age, race & ethnicity, and gender.
About Fatal Overdose Data
Fatal overdose data are provided by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and the Vital Statistics Administration (VSA) of the Maryland Department of Health. FATAL OVERDOSE DATA ARE PRELIMINARY AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Finalized annual data may be found on VSA’s website here: https://health.maryland.gov/vsa/Pages/overdose.aspx.
Important Note: Most fatal overdoses involve the simultaneous use of more than one substance. The individual substance categories shown here report the total number of times a substance was involved in a fatal overdose. The sum total of deaths related to individual substance categories does not equal the total number of fatalities for the time frame presented.
Maryland’s Office of Overdose Response is able to provide the preliminary data from our Overdose Data Dashboards via spreadsheet upon request. Complete the following form to submit a request: https://forms.gle/XssDaQRBk1Rbf6wj6.
