    COVID-19 Vaccine Doses Given to San Franciscans by Demographics Over Time

    data.sfgov.org | Last Updated 2022-08-11T15:19:48.000Z

    <strong>A. SUMMARY</strong> This dataset represents doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered in California to San Francisco residents over time. All vaccines given to people who live in San Francisco are included, no matter where the vaccination took place (the vaccine may have been administered in San Francisco or outside of San Francisco). The data are broken down by multiple demographic stratifications. <strong>B. HOW THE DATASET IS CREATED</strong> Information on doses administered to those who live in San Francisco is from the <a href="https://cairweb.org/about-cair/">California Immunization Registry (CAIR)</a>, run by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). The information on individuals’ city of residence, age, race, and ethnicity are also recorded in CAIR and are self-reported at the time of vaccine administration. In order to estimate the percent of San Franciscans vaccinated, we provide <a href="https://data.census.gov/cedsci/table?q=popualtion%20age&g=0500000US06075&tid=ACSST5Y2019.S0101&hidePreview=false">the same 2019 five-year American Community Survey population estimates</a> that are used in <a href="https://data.sfgov.org/stories/s/COVID-19-Vaccinations-Progress/7mye-zncy/">our public dashboards</a>. <strong>C. UPDATE PROCESS</strong> Updated daily via automated process <strong>D. HOW TO USE THIS DATASET</strong> Before analysis, you must filter the dataset to the desired stratification of data using the OVERALL_SEGMENT column. For example, filtering OVERALL_SEGMENT to "Ages 5+ by Age Bracket, Administered by All Providers" will filter the data to residents 5 and over whose vaccinations were administered by any provider. You can then further segment the data and calculate percentages by Age Brackets. If you filter OVERALL_SEGMENT to "Ages 65+ by Race/Ethnicity, Administered by DPH Only", you will see the race/ethnicity breakdown for residents aged 65+ who received vaccinations from San Francisco’s Department of Public Health (DPH).

    COVID Vaccinations Given to SF Residents Over Time

    data.sfgov.org | Last Updated 2022-08-11T15:17:41.000Z

    <strong>A. SUMMARY</strong> This dataset represents the COVID-19 vaccinations given to San Franciscans over time. All vaccines given to people who live in San Francisco are included, no matter where the vaccination took place (the vaccine may have been administered in San Francisco or outside of San Francisco). <strong>B. HOW THE DATASET IS CREATED</strong> Information on doses administered to those who live in San Francisco is from the California Immunization Registry (CAIR), run by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). <strong>C. UPDATE PROCESS</strong> Updated daily via automated process <strong>D. HOW TO USE THIS DATASET</strong> Different vaccines have different dosage requirements. For example, the Moderna and the Pfizer vaccines require two doses in order for a resident to complete their primary vaccine series (as of December 21, 2021). Each dose is recorded separately in its respective dataset column. Other vaccines, such as Johnson & Johnson, would only require a single dose for a resident to complete their primary vaccine series (as of December 21, 2021). The Pfizer vaccine for children under 5 requires three separate doses. Single dose vaccines counts are recorded in a separate column. Summing the NEW_1ST_DOSES, NEW_2ND_DOSES, NEW_SINGLE_DOSES columns would give you the total count of primary vaccine series doses administered on a given day. To count the number of individuals who have completed their primary vaccine series on a given day, use the NEW_SERIES_COMPLETED column. To count the number of individuals vaccinated (with any primary series dose) for the first time on a given day, use the NEW_RECIPIENTS column. To count the number of individuals who got a vaccine booster on a given day, use the NEW_BOOSTER_RECIPIENTS column. To count the number of booster doses administered on a given day, use the NEW_BOOSTER_DOSES column. To count the total number of individuals who have received a booster over time, use the CUMULATIVE_BOOSTER_RECIPIENTS column. To count the total number of booster doses that have been administered over time, use the CUMULATIVE_BOOSTER_DOSES column. In <a href="https://data.sfgov.org/stories/s/COVID-19-Vaccinations-Progress/7mye-zncy/">our public dashboards</a> we combine this dataset with <a href="https://data.census.gov/cedsci/table?q=popualtion%20age&g=0500000US06075&tid=ACSST5Y2019.S0101&hidePreview=false">the US Census's 2019 five-year American Community Survey population estimates</a> to estimate the percent of San Franciscans vaccinated.

    COVID-19 Cases by Population Characteristics Over Time

    data.sfgov.org | Last Updated 2022-08-11T14:03:24.000Z

    Note: On September 12, 2021, a new case definition of COVID-19 was introduced that includes criteria for enumerating new infections after previous probable or confirmed infections (also known as reinfections). A reinfection is defined as a confirmed positive PCR lab test more than 90 days after a positive PCR or antigen test. The first reinfection case was identified on December 7, 2021. Some fluctuation in historic data may result when this change is implemented on July 15, 2022. Note: As of March 2022, the race/ethnicity label changed from Native American to American Indian or Alaska Native to align with the Census. Note: On January 22, 2022, system updates to improve the timeliness and accuracy of San Francisco COVID-19 cases and deaths data were implemented. You might see some fluctuations in historic data as a result of this change. Due to the changes, starting on January 22, 2022, the number of new cases reported daily will be higher than under the old system as cases that would have taken longer to process will be reported earlier. <strong>A. SUMMARY</strong> This dataset shows San Francisco COVID-19 cases by population characteristics and by specimen collection date. Cases are included on the date the positive test was collected. Population characteristics are subgroups, or demographic cross-sections, like age, race, or gender. The City tracks how cases have been distributed among different subgroups. This information can reveal trends and disparities among groups. Data is lagged by five days, meaning the most recent specimen collection date included is 5 days prior to today. Tests take time to process and report, so more recent data is less reliable. <strong>B. HOW THE DATASET IS CREATED</strong> Data on the population characteristics of COVID-19 cases and deaths are from: * Case interviews * Laboratories * Medical providers These multiple streams of data are merged, deduplicated, and undergo data verification processes. This data may not be immediately available for recently reported cases because of the time needed to process tests and validate cases. Daily case totals on previous days may increase or decrease. <u><a href="https://data.sfgov.org/s/nudz-9tg2/">Learn more</a></u>. Data are continually updated to maximize completeness of information and reporting on San Francisco residents with COVID-19. Data notes on each population characteristic type is listed below. <u> Race/ethnicity</u> * We include all race/ethnicity categories that are collected for COVID-19 cases. * The population estimates for the "Other" or “Multi-racial” groups should be considered with caution. The Census definition is likely not exactly aligned with how the City collects this data. For that reason, we do not recommend calculating population rates for these groups. <u> Sexual orientation</u> * The City began asking adults 18 years old or older for their sexual orientation identification during case interviews as of April 28, 2020. Sexual orientation data prior to this date is unavailable. * The City doesn’t collect or report information about sexual orientation for persons under 12 years of age. * Case investigation interviews transitioned to the California Department of Public Health, Virtual Assistant information gathering beginning December 2021. The Virtual Assistant is only sent to adults who are 18+ years old.<u><a href="https://www.sfdph.org/dph/files/PoliciesProcedures/COM9_SexualOrientationGuidelines.pdf"> Learn more about our data collection guidelines pertaining to sexual orientation</a></u>. <u> Gender</u> * The City collects information on gender identity using <a href="https://www.sfdph.org/dph/files/PoliciesProcedures/COM5_SexGenderGuidelines.pdf">these guidelines</a>. <u> Comorbidities</u> * Underlying conditions are reported when a person has one or more underlying health conditions at the time of diagnosis or death. <u> Transmission type</u> * Information on transmission of COVID-19 is based on ca

    Note: On January 22, 2022, system updates to improve the timeliness and accuracy of San Francisco COVID-19 cases and deaths data were implemented. You might see some fluctuations in historic data as a result of this change. <strong>A. SUMMARY</strong> This dataset represents San Francisco COVID-19 related deaths by day. Deaths are included on the date the individual died. Data is lagged by five days, meaning the most date included is 5 days prior to today. All data update daily as more information becomes available. <strong>B. HOW THE DATASET IS CREATED</strong> COVID-19 deaths are suspected to be associated with COVID-19. This means COVID-19 is listed as a cause of death or significant condition on the death certificate. Deaths may be reported by: * Healthcare providers * The California Department of Public Health Vital Records * Case investigation or outbreak investigation * The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner It takes time to process this data. Because of this, data is lagged by 5 days and death totals for previous days may increase or decrease. More recent data is less reliable. Data are continually updated to maximize completeness of information and reporting on San Francisco COVID-19 deaths. <strong>C. UPDATE PROCESS</strong> Updates automatically at 05:00 AM Pacific Time each day. Redundant runs are scheduled at 07:00 AM and 09:00 AM in case of pipeline failure. Dataset will not update on the business day following any federal holiday. <strong>D. HOW TO USE THIS DATASET</strong> This dataset shows new deaths and cumulative deaths by date of death. New deaths are the count of deaths on that specific date. Cumulative deaths are the running total of all San Francisco COVID-19 deaths up to the date listed.

    Covid-19 Tests by Race Ethnicity and Date

    data.sfgov.org | Last Updated 2022-08-11T16:02:46.000Z

    Note: As of March 2022, the race/ethnicity label changed from Native American to American Indian or Alaska Native to align with the Census. Note: As of April 16, 2021, this dataset will update daily with a five-day data lag. Note: As of February 2022, the way race/ethnicity is categorized has been changed. See Section B for additional information. <strong>A. SUMMARY</strong> This dataset includes San Francisco COVID-19 tests by race/ethnicity and by date. This dataset represents the daily count of tests collected, and the breakdown of test results (positive, negative, or indeterminate). Tests in this dataset include all those collected from persons who listed San Francisco as their home address at the time of testing. It also includes tests that were collected by San Francisco providers for persons who were missing a locating address. This dataset does not include tests for residents listing a locating address outside of San Francisco, even if they were tested in San Francisco. The data were de-duplicated by individual and date, so if a person gets tested multiple times on different dates, all tests will be included in this dataset (on the day each test was collected). If a person tested multiple times on the same date, only one test is included from that date. When there are multiple tests on the same date, a positive result, if one exists, will always be selected as the record for the person. If a PCR and antigen test are taken on the same day, the PCR test will supersede. If a person tests multiple times on the same day and the results are all the same (e.g. all negative or all positive) then the first test done is selected as the record for the person. <strong>The total number of positive test results is not equal to the total number of COVID-19 cases in San Francisco.</strong> Each positive test result is investigated by the health department. While the city tries to only report on tests for San Francisco residents (or tests in San Francisco for those with no locating address listed), some test results purported to be for San Francisco residents are actually for people living outside the city. This can be discovered during a case investigation or data quality assurance. In such an instance, the test would be counted as a positive test in the SF data but would not be counted as a COVID-19 case in San Francisco. If a person tests positive for COVID-19 on different dates, they would be included each of those times in the testing data but only one case. To track the number of cases by race/ethnicity, see this dashboard: https://sf.gov/data/covid-19-population-characteristics#race-or-ethnicity- When a person gets tested for COVID-19, they may be asked to report information about themselves. One piece of information that might be requested is a person's race and ethnicity. These data are often incomplete in the laboratory and provider reports of the test results sent to the health department. The data can be missing or incomplete for several possible reasons: • The person was not asked about their race and ethnicity. • The person was asked, but refused to answer. • The person answered, but the testing provider did not include the person's answers in the reports. • The testing provider reported the person's answers in a format that could not be used by the health department. For any of these reasons, a person's race/ethnicity will be recorded in the dataset as “Unknown.” <strong>B. NOTE ON RACE/ETHNICITY</strong> The different values for Race/Ethnicity in this dataset are "Asian;" "Black or African American;" "Hispanic or Latino/a, all races;" "American Indian or Alaska Native;" "Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander;" "White;" "Multi-racial;" "Other;" and “Unknown." On February 10, 2022, the method for which race/ethnicity is categorized was updated for the sake of data accuracy, clarity, and stability. The new categorization increases data clarity by emulating the methodology used by the U.S. Census in the

You might see some fluctuations in historic data as a result of this change. Due to the changes, starting on January 22, 2022, the number of new cases reported daily will be higher than under the old system as cases that would have taken longer to process will be reported earlier. <i><b>Note: As of April 16, 2021, this dataset will update daily with a five-day data lag.</i></b> <strong>A. SUMMARY</strong> Medical provider confirmed COVID-19 cases and confirmed COVID-19 related deaths in San Francisco, CA aggregated by several different geographic areas and normalized by 2019 American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year estimates for population data to calculate rate per 10,000 residents. Cases and deaths are both mapped to the residence of the individual, not to where they were infected or died. For example, if one was infected in San Francisco at work but lives in the East Bay, those are not counted as SF Cases or if one dies in Zuckerberg San Francisco General but is from another county, that is also not counted in this dataset. Dataset is cumulative and covers cases going back to March 2nd, 2020 when testing began. Geographic areas summarized are: 1. <a href="https://data.sfgov.org/Geographic-Locations-and-Boundaries/Analysis-Neighborhoods/p5b7-5n3h">Analysis Neighborhoods</a> 2. <a href="https://data.sfgov.org/Geographic-Locations-and-Boundaries/Census-2010-Tracts-for-San-Francisco/rarb-5ahf">Census Tracts</a> 3. <a href="https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/geography/guidance/geo-areas/zctas.html">Census Zip Code Tabulation Areas</a> <strong>B. HOW THE DATASET IS CREATED</strong> Addresses from medical data are geocoded by the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH). Those addresses are spatially joined to the geographic areas. Counts are generated based on the number of address points that match each geographic area. The 2019 ACS estimates for population provided by the Census are used to create a rate which is equal to ([count] / [acs_population]) * 10000) representing the number of cases per 10,000 residents. <strong>C. UPDATE PROCESS</strong> Geographic analysis is scripted by SFDPH staff and synced to this dataset daily at 7:30 Pacific Time. <strong>D. HOW TO USE THIS DATASET</strong> <em>Privacy rules in effect</em> To protect privacy, certain rules are in effect: 1. Case counts greater than 0 and less than 10 are dropped - these will be null (blank) values 2. Death counts greater than 0 and less than 10 are dropped - these will be null (blank) values 3. Cases and deaths dropped altogether for areas where acs_population < 1000 <em>Rate suppression in effect where counts lower than 20</em> Rates are not calculated unless the case count is greater than or equal to 20. Rates are generally unstable at small numbers, so we avoid calculating them directly. We advise you to apply the same approach as this is best practice in epidemiology. <em>A note on Census ZIP Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTAs)</em> ZIP Code Tabulation Areas are special boundaries created by the U.S. Census based on ZIP Codes developed by the USPS.
