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).
Only the last variable you selected will be shown in the map; however, a school-level variable can be overlayed on another variable from other levels.
The shapes of geographic areas are very rough at lower levels of units due to few data points for drawing the shapes.
Official sources redefine geographic areas periodically. Some data may not show up on the map due to ID changes.
In addition, some geographic areas may not show up on the map because their data are suppressed or missing.
If the data you request have values for multiple time periods, only the latest value will show for each geographic area.
Select a geographic area below. Hold ctrl/command key to select multiple areas.
Please search and select variables from the search panel (Tutorial).
Please narrow your data request by selecting the specific state and time period in which you are interested for faster loading times.
