The COVI9 Tracking Project: The COVID Racial Data Tracker

“Tracking Race and Ethnicity in the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic isn’t affecting all communities the same way. That’s why we’re partnering with American University’s Antiracist Research & Policy Center to launch a new project: the COVID Racial Data Tracker.

To understand the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, we need to know who has gotten tested, who has gotten sick, and who has died. Is this disease hitting all communities in similar ways? Or do we see health-outcome disparities in this outbreak as we do in so much other public health data? Political leaders, community advocates, and policy experts all want answers to those questions, and to get them, we need data about the race and ethnicity of those whose lives have been affected by the virus.”
