COVID-19 Metrics for United States Congressional Districts

Nearly a year into the global pandemic, data on COVID-19 metrics for the United States Congressional Districts (CD) had not been readily available. Yet, having access to such data can substantially enhance the ability of elected officials and the constituents they represent to monitor and develop testing strategies and other measures to allow their districts to open safely.

Researchers at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies and the Center for Geographic Analysis present a public dashboard for congressional representatives, as well as their constituents, on key COVID-19 metrics for the congressional districts of the United States.

The cumulative cases and deaths provide information about the overall burden of COVID-19 in a congressional district, while COVID-19-related statistics for a specific month are presented so that elected representatives and their constituents can understand and plan the temporal evolution of the pandemic in their respective districts.
