Political and demographic associations with changes in COVID-19 rates at the tails
A few days ago, I wrote a post about poltical and demographic associations with changes in COVID-19 rates over all U.S. counties. Today, I’m augmenting that. For here, rather than considering all counties, I limited the study to counties with … Continue reading
