Data Collection and Reporting

This study analyzed various factors that triggered the health disparity in the United States, along with the rate of COVID-19 morbidity and mortality, focusing on Mississippi. The analysis suggested that the COVID-19 infection rate per 100,000 people is directly correlated with increased proportions of the Black population in the United States. Data also indicate that a higher number of Black populations are facing socioeconomic disadvantages, which elevates their chances of becoming vulnerable to pre-existing ailments such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases.
