All Critical Metrics
This chart enables you to see how all the critical metrics pertaining to the county operate in conjunction with each other. Some of the daily metrics – cases, fatalities and tests – are based on 7 day moving averages. Daily patients and daily ICU patients are from the CA HHS database. The positivity rate is derived from the daily case number divided by the daily case number. All the metrics except for testing totals come from the CA HHS database. Testing numbers come from the LA Public Health Dept.
LA County: Tests, Cases & Positivity Rate
Daily cases (the blue column) are a 7 day moving average. Daily tests (the beige area) are also a 7 day moving average. The positivity rate (red line) is derived by dividing the number for daily tests on a given day by the number of cases on the same day:
Patients, ICU Patients, HUR & IUR
This chart shows the most critical hospital metrics, compiled by the covidproject.com. Bed counts are from the American Hospital Directory and may not be accurate, since they are from before the pandemic.
The Hospital Utilization Rate (HUR) is derived by dividing the number for daily patients into the number of beds for the state. The IUR is derived the same way, except the numerator is the number of ICU beds for the state.
Since the number of beds changes from year to year and even from week to week, the important thing to look at here is the trend, not individual data points.
Historical Data: Cumulative Cases & Daily Cases from March 2020 to Present
Daily cases are based on 7 day moving averages.
Historical Data: Cumulative Fatalities & Daily Fatalities from March 2020 to Present
Daily fatalities are based on 7 day moving averages.
Cases, Daily Patients and Daily ICU
There is no established meaningful ratio that I know of for these three metrics, so the next best thing is looking at how they track with each other over time. Daily cases are 7 day moving averages. Daily patients and ICU are the numbers reported by the state of California.
