A Survey of Racial and Ethnic Disparities in COVID-19 Outcomes at State, Tribal, and County Levels

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in over 6 million infections and more than 200,000 deaths in the U.S. alone, and has exposed long-standing health disparities through its disproportionate impact on racial and ethnic minority communities. These disparities are likely due to a complex combination of risk factors, such as the presence of comorbidities, discrimination, healthcare access and utilization, occupation, or other social determinants of health. As the pandemic continues, understanding the presence and extent of this disproportionate impact remains an area of active and ongoing research. Here, we provide a current snapshot of COVID-19 case and mortality demographic data at state and, where available, tribal and county levels with a focus on identifying and quantifying racial disparities. A more detailed report is available here.
