According to the World Health Organization and the CDC, social distancing is currently the most effective way to slow the spread of COVID-19. We created this interactive Scoreboard, updated daily, to empower organizations to measure and understand the efficacy of social distancing initiatives at the local level.
Please scroll down and explore the data — the more we all understand, the more lives we can save together.
Real World Graph® — Unacast's core asset that provides a range of perspectives and critical context for how people relate to physical locations.The COVID-19 toolkit empowers organizations in unprecedented times, to make quality decisions quickly.
The toolkit is powered by Unacast's robust team of data scientists and PhDs focuses on data accuracy to ensure that our partners and clients get high-quality insights that reflect real-world events.
To ensure a full picture of activities, we wait for three days after an event day for all the data for that given event date to come in. Processing takes another day and therefore, the existing and default delay is four days from a given event date.
Since we know time is of the essence in the fight against COVID19, our team is figuring out if we can reduce the lag, use less data, and still provide strong signals. At the same time, we will further enhance our score to make it more robust and explain different facets of social distancing.
Our first underlying metrics uses change in average distance traveled from pre-COVID-19 days as one proxy:
• A: >70% decrease
• B: 55-70% decrease
• C: 40-55% decrease
• D: 25-40% decrease
• F: <25% decrease or increase
Our second metric uses change in non-essential visitation as an additional proxy:
• A: >70% decrease
• B: 65-70% decrease
• C: 60-65% decrease
• D: 55-60% decrease
• F: <55% decrease or increase
These two metrics are then combined:
A & B = round( (5 + 4) / 2) = 4.5 = A-
A & C = round( (5 + 3) / 2 ) = 4 = B
F & D = round( (1 + 2) / 2 ) = 1.5 = D-
