Measuring household experiences during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic


An interactive visualization of household data on the effects of the pandemic.

To help understand the social and economic effects of the pandemic, the United States Census Bureau has created a program to gather and disseminate data. The program’s title and website is Household Pulse Survey.

The first data was collected on April 23, 2020. Data is collected for all states and the 15 largest metropolitan areas each week.

The survey asks many questions, and there are six that the Bureau makes available in an interactive explorer. I have gathered this data for the states and created an interactive visualization. The data is presented in a table and two charts. You may select the time frame, questions, and states that appear.

To learn more about the data and access the visualization, click on Visualization: Measuring household experiences during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
