COVID-19 Deaths Compared to All Deaths in the U.S.

This chart shows a few things:

  1. Gray bars are the actual number of recorded deaths in the U.S. for the given week.
    1. The gray area in the latter 8 weeks also represent actual deaths, but are significantly incomplete while death certificates are still being processed.
  2. Red bars are the actual number of recorded COVID-19 deaths in the U.S.
    1. The red area in the latter 8 weeks also represent actual COVID-19 deaths, but are significantly incomplete while death certificates are still being processed.
  3. The orange line is percent of expected deaths – the number of deaths for all causes for this week in 2020 compared to the average number across the same week in 2017–2019.
    1. The orange dotted line is where the currently available percent of expected deaths is, but is significantly incomplete while death certificates are still being processed.

The raw data is available from the CDC. It’s been copied into this Google Sheet in order to produce this chart.

Number of deaths reported in this table are the total number of deaths received and coded as of the date of analysis, and do not represent all deaths that occurred in that period. Data during this period are incomplete because of the lag in time between when the death occurred and when the death certificate is completed, submitted to NCHS and processed for reporting purposes. This delay can range from 1 week to 8 weeks or more. Percent of expected deaths is the number of deaths for all causes for this week in 2020 compared to the average number across the same week in 2017–2019. Previous analyses of 2015–2016 provisional data completeness have found that completeness is lower in the first few weeks following the date of death (<25%), and then increases over time such that data are generally at least 75% complete within 8 weeks of when the death occurred.
