---


The Connecticut Deaths due to Drugs Dataset contains information about 5106 people who died due to drug overdose between 2012 and 2018 in Connecticut, US.

The dataset includes data related to the age, race, gender, place of residence of the victims as well as the drugs they overdosed on. This information can be used to understand if drug use is prevalent in a specific area or city, drug use by individuals of different age groups and races as well as the popularity of different types of drugs.
 
This dataset is recommended for exploring data visualization techniques, clustering techniques and implementing regression models to predict how drug use may increase over time.
