        要:
            Drug overdose is one of the leading causes of accidental death in the U.S., largely due to the opioid epidemic. Although the opioid epidemic is a nationwide issue, it has not affected the nation uniformly.
           We combined multiple data sources, including emergency medical service response, American Community Survey data, and health facilities datasets to analyze distributions of heroin-related overdose incidents in Cincinnati, Ohio at the census block group level. Statistical analyses were performed to examine geographic variation patterns in heroin-related overdose incidents within the study area. Conditional cluster maps were plotted to examine the relationship between heroin-related incident rates and sociodemographic characteristics of the area, as well as the resources for opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment.
