Age-Race-Ethnicity COVID-19 Age, Race and Ethnicity Data

COVID-19 Age, Race and Ethnicity Data

​As part of its commitment to reduce health inequities, the state has launched a Health Equity Dashboard on California's COVID-19 site that tracks California’s health equity measure and data by race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

CDPH updates data tables on age, race, and ethnicity weekly.
