Data Points Queried
The COVID-19 longitudinal database provides a rich foundation for studying responses to the pandemic. It draws on datasets across the sectors of education, health, housing, social services, employment, and technology access. Researchers can explore the database through a search engine and a mapping/graphing interface. The database includes data for six focus states (California, Florida, New York, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington). It covers the 3 years prior to the COVID-19 outbreak (2016–17, 2017–18, and 2018–19) and the 4 years (2019–20, 2020–21, 2021–22, and 2022–23, as planned) after the pandemic began. The database includes data at state, county, census tract, district, and school levels.
- The database allows for cross state (and district, school, county, and census tract) comparisons.
- Researchers can search and download data elements in the database (data tutorial).
- The mapping/graphing interface also allows analysis of education indicators by other characteristics or over time (see map tutorial and graph tutorial).
