Race-Ethnicity COVID-19 Race and Ethnicity Data

COVID-19 Race and Ethnicity Data

​As part of its commitment to reduce health inequities, the state has launched a Health Equity Dashboard on www.covid19.ca.gov that tracks California’s health equity measure and data by race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

CDPH updates data tables on race/ethnicity weekly.
