Bessie Liu Data Sketch 2


Colorado saw a huge spike in deaths in both Hispanic and Non-Hispanic communities. Would be interesting to examine the cause of these deaths, and the proportion of deaths in comparison to the Hispanic community in the state. I would be interested in knowing what lead to the spike in deaths – was it the lack of hospital beds and ventilators? Was it the state unwilling to close down shops and businesses? This will give a better idea of examining the root cause of the spike in deaths, and whether or not it was handled appropriately afterward.
