Additionally, Florida's counties were removed from the analysis after publication because we learned that Florida has not updated county-level death numbers since June 3. With the removal of these 67 counties, heavily Trump counties go from a 2.73 times higher death rate than heavily Biden counties to 2.78 times more.
Dec. 8, 2021
Up-to-date county-level death data for Florida has been missing from the Johns Hopkins database since June 3, when the Florida Department of Health stopped publishing this data on its website. However, the Community Profile Report, produced by the White House COVID-19 Team, publishes this information on a weekly basis, based on data reported to the CDC. Using this data, we have added Florida back into our analysis. Likewise, the Community Profile Report includes county-level death data from smaller counties in Utah that are not reflected in the Johns Hopkins data; we have updated those in our analysis. These changes mean that heavily Trump counties have a 2.73 times higher death rate than heavily Biden counties (a shift from 2.78 times higher with Florida excluded).
