Every day, our volunteers compile the latest numbers on tests, confirmed cases, hospitalizations, and patient outcomes from every US state and territory.
COVID-19 isn't affecting all communities equally. We've partnered with the Antiracist Research & Policy Center to collect the most complete racial data anywhere in the COVID Racial Data Tracker.
We're tracking racial and ethnic data from every state that reports it—and pushing those that don't to start. Together with the Antiracist Research & Policy Center, we're analyzing this data to uncover the true impact of the outbreak on vulnerable communities.See the racial data tracker
Our data powers crucial reporting and research. Here are just a few of the organizations that rely on our dataset.
Johns Hopkins relies on our testing data for its COVID-19 Testing Insights Initiative, which brings data and expert analysis together in one place. The initiative is designed to help policymakers and the public understand the trajectory of the pandemic, and make decisions about the path forward.
The White House
The White House chose the COVID Tracking Project as the best source to cite for daily US test numbers in its “Opening Up America Again” testing strategy.
COVID Exit Strategy
Created by a group of public health and crisis experts, covidexitstrategy.org identifies critical interventions needed to stop the spread of COVID-19, and urges government decision-makers to apply them. They use our data to power a dashboard comparing each state's interventions and testing levels with case counts and deaths over time.

For months, we've worked to patch together inconsistent state-reported data into a national set of numbers for COVID-19 case, death, and testing in the US. The CDC has now published a COVID Data Tracker, but their data only partially matches the numbers we get from the state public health authorities. So we took a closer look.
As antibody tests become more widely available across the United States, we call on all states and territories to preserve the integrity and usefulness of their COVID-19 testing data by maintaining separate viral testing and antibody testing counts.
We're rolling out a new, more rigorous system for grading the public health data each state reports. This new scoring system sets a more comprehensive and exact standard for evaluating how complete and meaningful each state’s data is.
