Notes

October 30, 2020
  • On October 30, 2020, our data source for test data, the Covid Tracking Project, changed its definition of the contents of its totalTestResults field for Wisconsin. We use this data for our positivity calculation denominator. This will will likely reduce the state's positivity percentage because people are deduplicated people less frequently, resulting in a bigger denominator.

Data Sources: Cases and deaths data from JHU CSSE. As of August 1, 2020, policy events are drawn from from various state-specific sources. Prior to that, the data source for policy events was the National Governor’s Association.

Our data provider, The Covid Tracking Project, is in the process of changing how it maps states’ data to the categories we use for our positivity calculations. These changes mean the category of data we use in our denominator (Total tests) may now include tests previously not included in our calculations, which in turn may result in a test positivity calculation that is lower than what we would have calculated for the state prior to the change.

With this significant change, we will once again review our data inputs and calculations to ensure that our numbers reflect the most responsible public health calculation of test positivity.
