Student Housing: A Gathering of Potential Health Risks?
THURSDAY, AUG 12, 2021
More U.S. colleges will open this fall with fewer restrictions due to the potential spread of COVID-19, and approximately 2.7 million students – one of the largest unvaccinated populations in the United States — are expected to move into dormitories.
A Social Explorer analysis of 2015-19 American Community Survey data finds 3.5 percent of the population of the District of Columbia lived in college dormitories in 2019. The district was trailed by four New England states: Vermont (2.7 percent); Rhode Island (2.3 percent); Massachusetts (2.2 percent); and New Hampshire (1.7 percent). Check out the percentage of the population living in a college dormitory with Social Explorer’s customizable report-building and mapping tools.
