Jordan, A. E., Blackburn, N. A., Des Jarlais, D. C., & Hagan, H. (2017). Past-year prevalence of prescription opioid misuse among those 11 to 30 years of age in the United States: A systematic review and meta-analysis. Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment, 77, 31-37.


Studies included in this dataset were identified through a meta-analysis of Jordan et al. (2017), which examined the pooled prevalence of prescription opioid misuse among US individuals 11 to 30 years of age. The dataset is meant for illustration purposes, and only contains a subset of the studies included in Jordan and colleagues' study. Results are therefore not identical with the actual results of this meta-analysis, and should not be interpreted as an accurate representation of the evidence.
