From New York University:
A new online dashboard, created by NYU Professor Alexej Jerschow, brings together COVID-19 data from U.S. states and countries around the world to compare cases, deaths, vaccines, and testing in a visual, user-friendly format.
The tool also integrates a range of policies governments have implemented to limit the spread of COVID-19—including school closings, stay-at-home orders, and mask mandates—in an effort to compare policy responses with COVID-19 outcomes.
Jerschow, who is a professor of chemistry and typically works in the field of magnetic resonance imaging and battery research, was looking for a convenient way to compare COVID-19 data from different countries and states. While the data were available from different sources, there was not a single tool that allowed him to easily analyze how different geographic areas were faring and responding to the pandemic—so, he created one.
The dashboard combines data from a series of publicly available sources. Country-wide information is downloaded from Our World in Data, which sources its data from the Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering dashboard. U.S. state and territory data are obtained from covidtracking.com. The Oxford COVID-19 Government Response Tracker (OxCGRT) provides policy data.
