NCHS Drug Poisoning Mortality by County

Check out this ChartFactor application, which allows users to visualize the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) drug poisoning mortality rates by county. Using a time slider we can replay and explore the data over time. A tab on the right side can be used to open a trend chart which allows users to compare county trends amongst the various counties on the map. Below this, there is also a tab which allows users to generate a heat map for the top 20 counties by drug poisoning mortality across a range of years.

You can access this web app live at We created it using our ChartFactor Studio software and made sure to give it our own special look and feel as well!

Data provided by the NCHS and available at

For our Data engine we used OpenSearch whilst the base map tiles were provided by OpenStreetMap.
