USAFacts, a not-for-profit, nonpartisan civic initiative providing the most comprehensive and understandable single source of government data, today announced the latest release of its USAFacts COVID-19 Impact and Recovery Hub.
"This hub is exciting because it's one of the only places people can visit to get trusted, government data on our pandemic recovery," said former Microsoft CEO and USAFacts Founder Steve Ballmer (News - Alert). "USAFacts has done the heavy lifting to collect and normalize data on key indicators and put it all in one spot.

While the hub's real-time data model updates numbers and facts daily, at time of release, the data shows:
According to USAFacts President Poppy MacDonald, "It was an immense undertaking that our small but mighty data team took on when building the USAFacts COVID-19 Impact and Recovery Hub. The result is a hub full of facts so Americans can filter out noise and misinformation. We believe the public that we serve deserves this data and should not be intimidated or limited when seeking it."
Until now, access to the range and depth of facts the COVID-19 Impact and Recovery Hub offers was time and resource prohibitive. USAFacts brought these numbers to light by sourcing and presenting the data in easy-to-read visualizations, empowering users to simply get to the facts as easily as they check the weather.
USAFacts sources the hub's data from hundreds of government sources, including the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the Department of Labor, and USAFacts's own trusted coronavirus case map, built from an aggregation of county-level COVID-19 data from state and local public health departments. It then standardizes, designs, and publishes in accessible formats all Americans can use.
USAFacts is a not-for-profit, nonpartisan civic initiative providing the most comprehensive and understandable single source of government data. USAFacts provides an online resource of well-visualized data and trends in US spending, revenue, demographics and policy outcomes - aimed at helping to ground our public debate in facts. It produces topical content throughout the year and has produced annual reports and 10-Ks on the nation.
