Interpretation and Limitations of the Cases Demographic Data Interpretation of the Data It is important to first understand the limitations of the data before drawing conclusions from the data that is presented in this dashboard. Reported and Unreported Demographics of Cases, Limitations : Not reported for a large number of cases, deaths, and hospitalizations. Laboratories do not routinely report race and ethnicity to health departments, which makes the collection of this data difficult. The distribution and rates of cases by race and ethnicity should be interpreted with caution knowing that they are under-reported. The amount and distribution of cases with race and ethnicity reported and not reported are provided in the dashboard as a measure and guide on the under-reporting and the caution that needs to be taken when interpreting the race and ethnicity data. To better and more accurately assess and implement programs to prevent the inequities and racial disparities that are present during this COVID-19 pandemic, it is important for health care providers and states to more thoroughly collect this information. Race and ethnicity : Reported for most cases. Only a small percentage of cases are missing age data. All Northern Virginia cases associated with a death have age reported. Only one hospitalization case in Northern Virginia did not report age. This thorough collection of age information leads to accurate findings on age distributions for cases, deaths, and hospitalizations. Age Race categorization, limitations Up until Monday, June 15th, data for ethnicity and race were reported separately. Race was previously reported into three categories: White, Black or African American, and all other races were combined into a single “Other Race” category. There are now more reporting categories and they are now somewhat consistent with U.S. Census Bureau classifications of Race by Ethnicity, except that there is no breakdown of race for Hispanic/Latinos. Hispanic/Latino is an ethnicity and those persons can be of any race. ​ Asian or Pacific Islander – Non-Hispanics who identify as “Asian” or “Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander” Black – Non-Hispanics who identify as “Black or African American” Hispanic – Individuals of any race who identify as “Hispanic or Latino” Native American – Non-Hispanics who identify as “American Indian or Alaska Native” White – Non-Hispanics who identify as “White” alone Other Race – Non-Hispanics who identify as “Other Race” alone Two or More Races – Non-Hispanics who identify as more than one of the above races
