As their months-long Color of Coronavirus project continues, APM Research Lab now includes an age-adjusted analysis of the race and ethnicity mortality data their staff collects and analyzes from across the country. These new figures paint a more nuanced — but equally fraught — picture of the toll COVID-19 is taking across specific communities in the United States. Adjusted for age differences in the groups, Black, Indigenous, Pacific Islander and Latino Americans all have a COVID-19 death rate of roughly triple or more White Americans. The data is available for all states to guide policy and community responses.
