COVID-19 by Demographics

This project is based on a small query I made when I was curious about how COVID-19 has affected the U.S. differently among demographics. This quick example analysis because data collected is from a public dataset that is not up-to-date. While I did not create a presentation to highlight the analysis and insights, the data collected raised personal questions and curiosities that I will highlight here.

COVID19_Demographics

Limits to Data:

  • Data was retrieved from 4/15/2020 to 3/7/2021

  • Did not include multiracial, other, etc. demographics in analysis

Key Takeaways:

  • Cases: The higher the “Percent compared to Demographics”, the more vulnerable the group is to getting COVID.
    Possible Reasons (Opportunities for research and discovery):

    • Living and working conditions saw more exposure.

    • Less access to PPE.

    • Tighter living and social spaces.

  • Deaths: The higher the “Percent compared to Demographics”, the more vulnerable the group is to dying from COVID.
    Possible Reasons (Opportunities for research and discovery):

    • Less access to healthcare.

    • More previous health problems, causing COVID to be more lethal.

      • Health Inequity
