Cases by Demographic

Cases by race and ethnicity are updated as additional data are available. Race and ethnicity categories will not align exactly with population totals because of incomplete data.

What to look for: Significant differences between the “% of all cases” and “% of population” for each race/age group indicate potential inequities in how the disease is being contracted and/or treated. For example, if 50% of all cases are among whites but whites are 75% of the population, then the data indicate non-white people are likely impacted more from COVID-19. Note that the measures for the most recent 4 weeks tend to be less accurate because of delayed information reporting and collection.
