United States COVID-19 Resiliency Estimates 2020-2022
This dataset includes estimates generated by IHME to assess the impact of COVID-19 in the USA and evaluate possible trade-offs between COVID-19 outcomes and the economy, employment, and education. The estimates include standardized cumulative infection and death rates, relative reductions in cumulative GDP and employment, and changes in student test scores. State-level estimates of cumulative death rates due to COVID-19 between January 1, 2020 and July 31, 2022 were extracted from IHME’s COVID-19 database and standardized for age and the prevalence of key comorbidities. Estimates of cumulative SARS-Cov-2 infection rates between January 1, 2020 and December 15, 2021 were adjusted for population density. Monthly data on GDP and employment rates were sector-standardized and estimated relative to the expected non-pandemic value. Student standardized test scores were expressed as the change in mean 4th grade math and reading scores between 2019 and 2022.
