Socially Relevant Variables In US State COVID-19 Surveillance Reporting: A Report Card
Project Description

The Report Card gathered information on the availability of surveillance data in each state using state health department web pages provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the COVID Tracking Project. It identified whether states are reporting cases and deaths stratified by age, sex/gender, race/ethnicity, and comorbidities. It also identified whether states are reporting interactions among any of these variables, such as the number of deaths of Black individuals with heart disease, or the number of COVID-19 cases among men across age groups. A 0-10 scoring scheme was developed for state surveillance reporting.

Translational Perspective

Although the project itself sits more solidly in public health/epidemiology, the project team consists of a group of feminist science scholars who have also attached public-facing writing, a tracking dashboard, and educational materials on the relationship between sex/gender and COVID-19.
