Full-year estimates of fentanyl or heroin drug reports ([section]) per 100,000 population (using DEA's NFLIS) ([paragraph]) and unintentional or undetermined intent heroin and synthetic opioid death rates per 100,000 population (using the National Vital Statistics System multiple cause-of-death mortality files) were stratified by the four U.S.
Finally, NFLIS drug reports might vary because of jurisdictional differences in drug evidence submission and testing practices.
([paragraph][paragraph]) Reported drug submissions to NFLIS decreased from 1.54 million in 2013 to 1.51 million in 2014 suggesting that the increase in fentanyl submissions was not driven by general increases in drug submissions to NFLIS.
The first analysis compared trends in fentanyl deaths, fentanyl submissions, and fentanyl prescribing during January 2013-June 2015, using 1) medical examiner and coroner reports in Florida and death certificates in Ohio, 2) NFLIS data in both states, and 3) prescription drug monitoring program data (E-FORCSE in Florida ([paragraph]) and OARRS in Ohio **) that track the prescribing and dispensing of controlled substances (schedules II, III, and IV drugs).
