Note: Accidents are deaths with an underlying cause of death of ICD-10 codes: V01-X59 or Y85-Y86. Accidental drug overdoses are accidental poisoning deaths (underlying cause of death X40-X44) with a related cause of death that mentions heroin, prescription opioids or other synthetic opioids (ICD-10 T40.0-T40.4, T40.6)

AARC:Average annual rates of change or growth rates are calculated as:

[(Dn/D0)1/N-1] x 100

where Dn = the number of deaths occurring in the last time period.
D0 = the number of deaths occurring in the earliest time period.
N = Number of years in interval.
This geometric rate of change assumes that a variable increases or decreases at the same rate during each year between the two time periods.
