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.

The CDC and HHS are now publishing data that is much more comparable to the figures we have been compiling from states since last spring. Gaps and inconsistencies remain, and we will continue to analyze federal data and document what we find through the end of May.

Last week, South Carolina released federal vaccine data that shows which long-term-care facilities have received doses. They are the only state providing this transparency on the vaccine process. The CDC and other states should follow their lead.
