Covid-19 and Rural Areas in the U.S.

Last updated on 29-Jul-2020 Introduction Now that we are square in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, I thought it might be beneficial to look at some statistics associated with the number of cases. We’ll differentiate our analysis by focusing on cases of Covid-19 in rural areas of the U.S. There are a couple of reasons for this: mainly, rural analytics is my speciality, so while I don’t know much about the virus, I do know some about rural societies and economies; we can easily find pertinent data on rural counties; and, we can utilise some cool built-in R functions to help us along the way.
