While big trends tell one story, no two states are the same when it comes to the demographics of their rural communities. Stacker used data from the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy and U.S. Census to dig into these data.
Stacker compiled essential COVID-19 statistics from several different sources to paint a clearer picture of how the pandemic is progressing in each state.
Stacker visualized how cases and deaths in every state have progressed, for three months since the beginning of March when most states began reporting COVID-19 data.
To get a better understanding of the CDC’s role amid the novel coronavirus pandemic—and how its response has affected American public health—Stacker compiled a list of 35 major events that highlight the CDC’s responses to COVID-19.
In April 2020, COVID-19 became the leading cause of death. To date, this respiratory disease has already caused more deaths in the U.S. per year than all but the top seven leading causes of death; by August, it’s projected that COVID-19 will cause more deaths than every leading cause of death (except heart disease) in a full year.
Using data from the CDC, public health resources, and reporting, Stacker compiled a list of 27 population groups that are vulnerable to COVID-19. For each group, Stacker compiled data on this population’s distribution across the United States.
As the 2020 U.S. census gets under way, a review of historical data shows the difficulties in measuring race.
To demonstrate the scale of this environmental crisis, Stacker scoured news reports and research on Australia’s fires to identify 15 key statistics on the environmental damage caused by these fires, as well as the political legacy they are leaving.
For this story, Stacker scoured the scientific literature (and surveyed a few of our science communication friends) to compile a list of 20 incredible mutualisms showcasing how different life forms can work together.
To find out which popular baby names are shared by hurricanes, Stacker ranked 50 baby names that have been used for at least five hurricanes and/or tropical storms since 1950.
