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.

Here's a snapshot of what the key COVID-19 metrics look like in Washington, DC as of today.

January 7, 2021

Twitter
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.

January 3, 2021

Twitter
Today's record death count includes a backlog of "roughly 200" deaths reported in WA. Even without this backlog, today's total would still be the highest to date.

December 31, 2020

Twitter
WA revised their total test numbers down by 667k. The state's dashboard noted duplicate case counts and incomplete data from November 21 to December 16.

December 19, 2020

Twitter
Today’s test number includes a backlog of about 226k tests from WA, which had not reported test encounters since Nov 22. We will try to get a time series to backfill the tests, but may not succeed.
