Esri and United Nations Create COVID-19 Population Vulnerability Dashboard

 

New Tool Will Help Public Health Organizations Use Census

Data to Fight Pandemic

 the global leader in location intelligence, today announced

it has collaborated with the United Nations Population Fund

(UNFPA) to create the UNFPA COVID-19 Population

Vulnerability Dashboard. This new interactive tool will

provide public health workers, policy makers, and the

general public with access to useful information on

populations vulnerable to coronavirus disease 2019

(COVID-19) in order to target preparedness and response

and to help save lives.

The dashboard highlights population vulnerabilities at the

national and subnational levels, using data from the latest

Integrated Public Use Microdata Series (IPUMS) census

samples for 94 countries. It identifies populations at older

ages, including those living alone, and includes risk factors

for COVID-19 transmission such as residential density

(household size and persons per room) and access to piped

water and other amenities.

Daily updates on COVID-19 cases and deaths are embedded

in the dashboard, as is global data on health sector

readiness. This includes the density of available health care

workers, hospital beds, and intensive care units (ICUs).

 

“National and subnational disparities in vulnerability can be

striking,” said Linda Peters, Esri global business

development manager. “How these differences will affect

overall transmission and health risk will be shaped by

critical factors such as the scale and timing of government

lockdowns. But geographic comparisons help us anticipate

potential risks, and remind us of the huge differences in

underlying development needs and health sector readiness

between countries.”

Since the census data included is in the public domain—and

therefore from the 2010 census samples—the dashboard

also provides WorldPop projections of the 2020 population

numbers among older age groups, organized by sex and

population density, for more than 200 countries.
