Data from the U.S. Centers of Disease Control indicates that, between 2005 and 2017, the proportion of drug overdose fatalities attributable to opioids has increased from 50% to 70%. With these numbers on the rise, RGA was prompted to conduct an in-depth, data-driven investigation.
Nick Kocisak of RGA's Global Research and Data Analytics team shares an analysis of the relationship between opioid use and mortality results, with five key findings.
This video was developed in conjunction with actuview, the first permanent international media platform for actuaries (www.actuview.com). actuview content reflects contributions from actuarial institutions, corporate partners and industry professionals. RGA is actuview’s sponsoring partner.
