Scientific Questions Being Studied

1. What are the status of opioid use disorder among different races and people with difference socio-economic status from underrepresented populations in the U.S.?
2. Which analysis methods are effective for understanding the research question #1 above?
3. What are the best approach to apply the developed methods and used datasets from this study in a data analysis course?
