Adhikari, S., Pantaleo, N., Feldman, J. et al. (2020). Assessment of Community-Level Disparities in Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Infections and Deaths in Large US Metropolitan Areas. JAMA Network Open. 3(7):e2016938.
This article discusses results from a cross-sectional study conducted in May 2020 that used census data aggregated at the county level to explore the relationships between income, race, and COVID-19 infections and deaths. The authors concluded that “racial and ethnic disparities in COVID-19 infections and deaths existed beyond those explained by differences in income.”
