Data Reporting Assessment (Learn more about data quality assessments)

Last updated

When Nebraska reports no data, several days of data, or unusual data (such as decreases in values that should increase), our volunteers note it here on the date the anomaly occurred. We also note here changes in our own methodology that affect the data.

Nebraska combines PCR and antigen tests in the total tests figure reported on the state's dashboard, and thus antigen tests are included in our "Total Tests (PCR)" metric. Nebraska's cumulative data values often decrease without explanation, likely due to deduplication or other data corrections.

Nebraska’s Recovered numbers occasionally decrease without explanation.

On January 20, 2021, Nebraska reported that its dashboard would be down until “later in the week” due to system maintenance. The Nebraska Department of Health reported Deaths and Now hospitalized values manually.

On January 13, 2021, Nebraska’s Recovered decreased by 1864 without explanation.

On January 9, 2021, Nebraska’s Deaths (confirmed + probable) decreased by 78 without explanation.

On January 3, 2021, Nebraska’s Recovered value decreased by nearly 4,000 without explanation.

On December 26, 2020, Nebraska’s Ever hospitalized decreased by 3, their Recovered decreased by 4265, and their Deaths (confirmed + probable) decreased by 10 without explanation.

On November 13, 2020, Nebraska's cumulative hospitalized count dropped by 21 without explanation.

On November 6, 2020, Nebraska removed 114 recoveries without explanation.

On October 30, 2020, we backfilled the full time series for Nebraska's Total Tests into our "Total Tests (PCR)" metric from a Nebraska GIS query. At the same time, we filled our Positive Tests (PCR) and Negative Tests (PCR) from the same query.

On September 20, 2020, Nebraska started publishing Total Tests (in specimens) in addition to People Tested (in people), and we started collecting the Total Tests daily into our Total Tests (PCR) metric.

On November 22, 2020, Nebraska's Recovered metric dropped from 56,605 to 16,068 without explanation.
