COVID-19 Tracking Project & BU CAR | Racial Data Tracker

COVID-19 is affecting Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other people of color the most. The COVID Racial Data Tracker advocates for, collects, publishes, and analyzes racial data on the pandemic across the United States. This project is a collaboration between the COVID Tracking Project and the Boston University Center for Antiracist Research to gather the most complete and up-to-date race and ethnicity data on COVID-19 in the United States.

Together, the organizations have compiled the race and ethnicity data that states are reporting for several COVID-19 data categories so that other researchers can begin to work with, analyze, and visualize this information. This is a challenging dataset to compile and code. While an increasing number of states and territories are providing race and ethnicity data, that data remains incomplete and inconsistent. The COVID Tracking Project and BU’s Center for Antiracist Research are advocating to change that.
