About the data
In data for the United States, The Times uses reports from state, county, and regional health departments. Most governments update their data daily and report cases and deaths based on an individual’s residence.
Not all governments report it in the same way. The Times uses the total of confirmed and probable counts when available individually or in combination. To see if a condition includes probable cases and deaths, visit the individual status pages listed at the bottom of that page.
U.S. data includes cases and deaths that have been identified by public health officials as confirmed coronavirus patients, and also includes probable coronavirus cases and deaths when governments report them. Confirmed cases and deaths, which are widely regarded as an undercoverage of the true toll, are counts of individuals whose coronavirus infections have been confirmed by a molecular laboratory test. Probable cases and death count people who meet criteria for other types of tests, symptoms and exposure, as developed by national and local governments.
Governments often revise the data or report a large single-day increase in cases or deaths on unspecified days without historical revisions, which can lead to an irregular trend in reported daily figures. The Times excludes these anomalies from the seven-day averages where possible.
