State by State Coronavirus Deaths as Percentage of Population Tracker

This tracks coronavirus deaths as a percent of the population for each state in the USA.

States are listed in order by those with the highest percentage of the population that died of coronavirus COVID-19.

(To see the rate of increase for US deaths, see this, or rate of increase for confirmed COVID-19 cases, see this. Or see what percent of the population has been confirmed with coronavirus in each state, or more coronavirus trackers here.)

Below the bar chart, you will find the table of numbers in case you prefer to see the actual data. Jump down there. Or, jump down to see the source of this data.

    Wow! You’ve done a lot of work and research. Thank you. Great job!

    Those of us not buying into the prevailing narrative need these stats and those who do need to realize these facts.

    Are you using John Hopkins COVID-19 tracker or the WHO tracker? I ask because the CDC, as you may already know, recently changed their numbers from 60K to 37K.

    Do you retain historical data and can you graph it to show rate of increase? Thanks for this information it really helps put the data into perspective. Knowledge is only as good as the information considered.

    Thank you so much for all your work! Is there also a graph that shows the proportion of cases in relation to tests?
    This would also probably help a lot to reduce the panic due to so many new cases…

      Sorry, I haven’t graphed the number of tests. That’s a good point. It’s good for everyone to remember that many cities, and even workplaces, are now testing A LOT more, and this is one reason for greater numbers of confirmed cases.
