Coronavirus in Indian Country: Latest Case Counts

May 15, 2020

American Indian communities have some of the highest rates of coronavirus in the United States. However, this data is almost certainly incomplete as scholars have routinely shown how American Indian and Alaska Natives (and other Indigenous peoples as well) are often misidentified and undercounted in various administrative and vital statistics records.

About the Data

Data sourced from publicly available data collected by Indian Country Today to address data gaps regarding COVID-19 infections and deaths for American Indian reservations and Alaska Native villages.

Visualizations created as a research collaboration between the American Indian Studies Center at UCLA and the data team based at the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies at UCLA, working together to comprehensively document the disparate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Black, Indigenous, and other historically marginalized communities.
