Tracking How Coronavirus is Affecting the United States

by Michael McLaughlin

Opportunity Insights, an institute of social scientists and policy analysts based at Harvard University, has released a dataset of employment rates, consumer spending, and job postings to help researchers track how coronavirus is affecting the United States. The dataset combines anonymized data from private organizations, such as credit card processors and payroll firms, as well as mobility and unemployment insurance claims data. The dataset indicates that, as of June 17, 2020, consumer spending has declined by 8.5 percent compared to January 2020.
