States provide COVID-19 data in a variety of sources and formats. To ensure our data is as accurate and consistent as possible, we spend a lot of time looking at these sources to make sure that we’re capturing the most data possible for each state, while maintaining high standards of data quality and integrity. Today, we’re publicly releasing a detailed set of notes on the sources of all our data points.
Our redesigned homepage puts information you can use right at the top of the page, gets you into the data more quickly, and surfaces analysis that can help you better understand COVID-19 in the US.
Our volunteer-powered work depends on the contributions of hundreds of individuals, but it also wouldn’t be possible without the support of the tech companies that have donated their services to help us connect with each other, run a fast and stable website and API, and tell the stories emerging from the data we compile.
In our fifth month of compiling COVID-19 data from 56 US states and territories, we have redesigned the data displays and annotations on our website to reveal more of the data each state and territory publishes and sharpen the contextual information that runs alongside it.
