The rates presented are opioid prescription rates per population. They are not rates of the number of different people who are receiving an opioid prescription in a certain population. These numbers are federally-standardized indicators used to measure types of progress toward combating the opioid epidemic in certain states. These numbers do not indicate the numbers or rates of individuals who have received one or more opioid prescriptions in any given year.( i.e., if a county has a rate of 25 out of 1,000, that means there were 25 prescriptions per 1,000 population, but, all 25 prescriptions could have been for one individual. It does not necessarily mean that 25 out of 1,000 individuals received a prescription.)
