New York Times and COVID Data Sets
Since the beginning of the COVID pandemic, the New York Times has been compiling a range of crucial data to help the general public track the disease. Most of the data published by the NYT reflects the daily cumulative number of COVID cases and deaths as reported by each individual county and state across the United States. This data has been collected since the beginning of the pandemic, however, the NYT has added some new data sets.
These new data sets include the number of COVID cases in prisons, in colleges and university campuses, and the elevated number of overall deaths during the pandemic. It also includes a survey from July 2020 regarding how regularly people in each US county wore a face mask to protect against the spread of COVID-19. Thanks to the New York Times, our maps have a detailed source of data to help you make more informed decisions about your health.
