Bessie Liu Data Sketch 1


COVID 19 cases in Colorado seem to have disproportionately affected Latinx communities – especially when related back to the population per capita. Latinx people make up only 21% of the entire population in Colorado. It would be interesting to examine why COVID has infected such a large amount of people in the Latinx community in this state, examine how many of these cases translated into deaths, and how many of these cases were recovered. Would also look into how the virus may have been transmitted – is it work-related? Larger families? – Would look at wage data and the total number of people in the household.
