UPDATE: The Spring 2020 Data Dashboard is now live. Click here to view.
Funded by a generous donation from ECMC Foundation, C2I is developing a COVID-19 data dashboard that is now ready for public use. At launch, the dashboard includes data on four-year public and non-profit colleges for every day in the month of March 2020. From March 6th to March 12th nearly 2/3rds of all four-year institutions announced plans to transition online; our dashboard will allow for researchers, policymakers, students and their families, and administrators to understand how colleges made those decisions. Below you can see a preview gallery of the project as it currently stands with descriptions of some of the functionality of the dashboard. The dashboard allows users to condition on institution type, infrastructure, enrollment, endowment size, and several variables pertaining to athletics. Users will also be able to hone in on a given institution’s peer institutions to allow benchmarking.
A few weeks after that dashboard is released, we will begin to release data on Fall 2020 campus re-openings; again, we will provide an institution-by-day dataset and intend to update the data daily. Student researchers are using web-scraping protocols to identify COVID-19 updates when they occur and update the dataset accordingly. We will also make the data available for download to interested parties.
