Race & ethnicity data

We compute the number of cases and deaths per 100k people for each race and ethnicity.

These numbers show the scale of outcomes compared to the size of each group’s population. These are not the number of cases or deaths, rather the proportion of each demographic group who have been affected.

At publish time, we had no updates from 7 of the 56 states and territories we track: AR, CT, KS, MI, MP, RI, and WA. Seven additional states did not report current hospitalizations today: HI, MN, MS, NV, OK, OR, and WI.

Zooming into the state level, more than 10 states broke case records today: AK, AR, AZ, DE, IN, MA, ME, NJ, PA, RI, and VT. Note: AZ had a higher count on Dec. 1, but it was a data backlog.

Today, Arkansas did not update any of its metrics except for hospitalization figures. In addition, Minnesota has not updated its hospitalizations and ICU figures since Thursday.

It’s important to note that, sadly, our numbers are an undercount since not all states have been reporting data in the past few days. Both Missouri and Washington haven't updated any numbers since October 10. Arkansas also missed today's update.
