Jascha Wagner, a research assistant at The Center for Drug and Health Studies, together with Dr. Tammy Anderson, Logan Neitzke-Spruill, Daniel O’Connell, James Highberger, Steven S. Martin, and Rebecca Walker, published a paper "Understanding Geographic and Neighborhood Variations in Overdose Death Rates" in Journal of Community Health. This study is based on the data from The Delaware Opioid Metric Intelligence Project (DOMIP), funded by the National Institute of Justice. This study highlights the role of neighborhood context in overdose death rates against the backdrop of the current opioid epidemic. Findings indicate there is significant variation in overdose rates among neighborhoods, and a more segmented analysis by neighborhood’s socio-economic and demographic makeup is warranted in the investigation of overdose death rates .
