COVID-19 Data Briefs

Map | NewsStatistics | Health Tips | Projections | Briefs

We have discontinued our daily collection and analysis of state and county reported data related to the Covid-19 coronavirus. This information is still available from state and local health agencies, national and local media, and the CDC. This change will allow us more time to do what we do best: assisting our clients in solving complex problems with actionable insights that lead to growth. We will periodically present new Coronavirus briefs and reports that further validate scientific findings or when we discover new insights that require further exploration through advanced analytics.

Appendixes - U.S. State Data - April-June 14, 2020

The following appendixes supplement the COVID-19 information displayed in the June 7, 2020 Brief.

Fatalities per 100,000 Population
Calculating the ratio of COVID-19 fatalities to a state's population is an equitable way to compare one state total to another. It is computed by dividing the number of reported deaths by the state's population, and then multiplying that number by 100,000. It is important to note that the CDC standard definition for death due to COVID-19 is not reported uniformly across the U.S., which affects the comparisons between individual states. For this data set, we included the calculated U.S. ratio plus reported data from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
