Data Collection and Reporting

This study contains preliminary data about correlations between COVID-19 infection and mortality rates and racial/ethnic/minority groups in seven heavily impacted states (Michigan, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, California, Louisiana, and Massachusetts). The data found that African Americans were more vulnerable to infection and mortality than other populations, and that socioeconomic and other health factors play a significant factor in disparities.
