Statista dossier on diseases of despair in the United States

This dossier provides some of the most interesting facts and figures relating to diseases of despair, or deaths of despair, in the United States. Diseases of despair include drug overdose, alcohol abuse, and suicide. These three behavior-related conditions are labelled diseases of despair because they disproportionately impact people and communities who experience despair due to their social or economic situation and the perceived hopelessness of their circumstances.
