14-Day Case Rate
This unofficial metric is provided to support school leaders interested in using the CDC’s Indicators for Dynamic School Decision-Making. The dashboard displays:
- The population estimate for each ZIP code
- “Case count (14-day)” displays the number of cases reported during the 14-day period described in the table header
- “Cases per 100k” displays the 14-day case rate per 100,000 for each ZIP code
- “For ZIP Codes selected” displays the total population, 14-day case count, and case rate for all selected ZIP codes.
Use the optional ZIP Code Filter to select the ZIP codes you are interested in.
- To view countywide results, Check “ZIP Code” in the drop down menu to select all ZIP codes.
- To view the combined results for a selected set of ZIP codes, un-check “ZIP Code” in the drop down menu and select the ZIP codes you are interested in.
- The 14-day case rate is derived from the total number of new cases reported during last 14 days, divided by the population, and multiplied by 100,000.
- Rate calculations are based on the average daily change in case counts as reported by the County of San Diego for each ZIP code.
- Population estimates for each ZIP code are from the San Diego Association of Governments through datasurfer.sandag.org.
- Rates based on small case counts may vary considerably and should be interpreted with caution.
- Cases are reported by the ZIP code of residence, which may not be location of exposure.
