Tracking the Trends in the COVID-19 Deaths

As the U.S. looks to reopen, citizens are seeking to understand the nature of the spread of COVID in their locations. This interactive map provides up-to-date, county-level information on total deaths and the 14-day trend of new deaths with population and population-density data. The 14-day average daily change in new deaths represents a given number of fewer (or more) deaths per day over the most recent 14-day period (ending ).

For reference, the median (middle) value for county population is 25,726, and the median county population density is 45 people per square mile. The most densely populated county is New York County (Manhattan) at 71,876. The four most densely populated counties are in New York, and San Francisco is the fifth most densely populated county at 18,834 people per square mile.

Population density is designated “Low” if it is less than 100 people per square mile (roughly the 70th percentile); “Medium” if between 100 and 1,000 (roughly the 95th percentile); “High” if between 1,000 and 10,000; “Very High” if greater than 10,000 (this designation is reserved for the top 10 counties, 4 of which are in New York).
