Demographics

Rates per 100,000 population: Rates are calculated by dividing the number of events (e.g. cases, deaths) by the relevant population. Then, multiply by 100,000. This rate can then be compared to rates of other geographic areas or demographic populations, regardless of population size. For rates for a certain age group, race/ethnicity, or sex, the relevant population includes only those of that age group, race/ethnicity, or sex. Denominators for rates are from the 2020 National Center for Health Statistics population estimates. To learn more, view About The Data.

How to use the Demographics dashboard:
To see your health district of interest, choose your health district from the top left-hand drop down menu. You can also select more than one health district. You can also choose a health district from the top right-hand drop down menu to compare between health districts. Click on the buttons in the middle to choose the time period of interest or counts or rates of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. The dashboard will update based on your selections.

COVID-19-Associated Hospitalization Surveillance Network (COVID-NET) is a population-based surveillance system. It collects data on COVID-19-associated hospitalizations among children and adults. A network of over 250 acute-care hospitals in 14 states take part in the COVID-NET program. Virginia does not take part in the program. But, these data are still useful to summarize the people hospitalized in the COVID-NET population. It can give an idea of what COVID-19 hospitalizations look like in the United States, including Virginia.
