Social Explorer continues COVID-19 work with The New York Times to track vaccination data


Urgency about the COVID-19 pandemic has waned considerably over the past three years, but the death toll still is roughly 240 people every day – the equivalent of a Sept. 11 terror attack every two weeks. More than 1.1 million Americans have died since the first pandemic-related death was reported in late February 2020. 

Social Explorer is continuing to keep tabs on COVID-19, working with The New York Times to apply its demographic expertise to the pandemic. The Times, which reaches 9.3 million subscribers and is considered the “newspaper of record” in the United States, was awarded the 2021 Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of the pandemic.

Demographic data has been an integral part of The New York Times coverage of the pandemic. Social Explorer is providing and analyzing population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau that allows readers to monitor the spread of the coronavirus on a national, state, and county level. 

Social Explorer has combined demographic data with information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to allow readers to identify vaccination rates, including doses per person, completion of primary series, and bivalent boosters on a per-capita basis for every state and county in the United States.

“After more than three years, the COVID-19 pandemic is still with us,” said Andrew Beveridge, president and co-founder of Social Explorer. “Tracking its spread with demographic data can warn us of future potential outbreaks or let us know when we can finally put our guard down.”
