About the data

Please be aware that the latest data is not always 100% accurate as countries, states, and counties update data at different times and sometimes retroactively make corrections to previous days' data. As a result, take any data viewed online, either from Plansafe or any website for that matter, with a pinch of salt.

Plansafe consolidates data from three primary sources:
1. COVID-19 Data Repository by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University
2. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention COVID-19 Tracker
3. State and county public health COVID-19 dashboards (for United States county vaccination data)

For United States county vaccination data, Plansafe looks across a multitude of CDC, state, and county dashboards, which in some cases have weekly update times for their data or do not regularly update their numbers whatsoever. As a result, any associated delays with the source data will be reflected by a field in the API response indicating the date at which the municipality recorded that data. In some cases, counties do not publish exact percentages for their vaccination status; in this case, a percentage estimate is calculated by using the most recently updated census population data for the county. For these reasons, data from The Service is not meant, and should not be used, for informing medical or other such mission-critical decisions. The Plansafe COVID-19 Vaccine Hunter (United States only) relies on scraped data from a multitude of state and county websites and publically accessible information from retailers, insurance providers, and hospital groups. Case and death counts data for both the United States and countries supported by the Plansafe COVID-19 Global Insights Dashboard are consolidated from the COVID-19 Data Repository by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University.
