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.

For the 2nd week in a row, LTC facilities reported the highest weekly death toll—over 7,000. It’s likely that winter holiday backlogs and a change in Iowa’s death reporting have influenced this high number.

On 10/16, IA reclassified ~10k tests from PCR to antigen, causing its totals to drop. NV redesigned its dashboard and removed the number of people who tested negative, a figure we used to calculate totals. We froze the figure, making NV’s tests appear as all positive for 5 days.

Today, ID is back, but we’re missing hospitalization updates from states including AL, AR, CT, IA, LA, MI, MO, MS, NH, OR, RI, SC, and WY. Some due to the new HHS directive, others because it’s the weekend. We will keep reporting on the availability of this data.

@robMerriMath @michael_nielsen You're onto us, Robert. And yes. Now if only we can get the last holdout states to start reporting negatives and then FOIA the historical data, we'll complete the data set. (We hope.)
