County-Level Characteristics Related to Increased Risk for Severe COVID-19 Complications

Interactive Visualization (AHA Center for Health Metrics and Evaluation)

Identify U.S. counties with high levels of specific demographic characteristics and health conditions associated with higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Users can select a U.S. state and identity counties with higher levels of air pollution and higher proportions of residents who are older (65+ years), non-Hispanic black or Hispanic, or have certain health conditions, all of which might put a region’s population at higher risk for severe complications from a COVID-19 outbreak.
