The core content of this Data section focuses on data sets that can be downloaded and analyzed in formats such as XML and .csv. The section begins with repositories of existing data sets, followed by key existing data sets categorized by type. Later in the data section, there are requests for data sets people would like to analyze. Country-specific and subnational data sets are listed by country at the end of the Data section.

Datasets We Would Like

💡Representative samples of populations tested regardless of symptoms (suggested here; drive through testing in South Korea of tens of thousands early on; 4% of 1097 randomly tested hospital staff infected with Coronavirus in Brabant, the Netherlands)

💡Hospitalisation rate by different ages/comorbidities (Vox article summarising infection and fatality rate by age, 23rd March)  some of that

💡Case fatality rate by age and comorbidity at the same time

💡Audio recordings of coughs We would like to build an app that can record a cough and identify if it is likely caused by COVID-19 This will also hopefully help us track the spread of the virus.

💡Police arrest data (in regions with enforcement). Numbers and breakdowns by race/gender/class.

💡Testing & case reporting protocols for each country.

💡 Clinical features of positive and negative cases who underwent swabs test.

Project Ideas (add your own!)                                                                    

Requirements to be “high quality”:

  • Taken from source, e.g. PHE, not a re-publisher like JHU CSSE.
  • Validated against multiple sources if available. Can then flag when other data providers have errors, thus improving data quality of all providers.
  • Historical data. Some providers only give “today’s count”, e.g. PHE by region.
  • Tidy data. JHU CSSE’s data is forcing many to reshape it from wide to long, time that could be better spent on improved modelling.
  • Localised as much as possible. COVID-19 spreads locally within communities. Good localised data may be extremely useful for researchers evaluating efficacy of different strategies.
  • Automated ETL with auto-validation. CSSE has a huge number of data errors now on their published datasets (314 open issues at time of writing). Other data sources rely on manual updates. This is unacceptable and may stop if the maintainer contracts COVID-19.
