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

    data.sfgov.org | Last Updated 2021-09-28T15:17:30.000Z

    <strong>A. SUMMARY</strong> This dataset represents doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered in California to San Francisco residents over time. The data is broken down by multiple demographic slices. The three dose types are counted separately, i.e. (1) first doses administered as a part of a two-dose vaccination, (2) second doses administered as part of a two-dose vaccination, and (3) single-dose vaccines administered. <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 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 slice of data using the OVERALL_SEGMENT column. For example, filtering OVERALL_SEGMENT to "Ages 16+ by Age Bracket, Administered by All Providers" will filter the data to residents 16 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 2021-09-28T15:15:55.000Z

    <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.) The three dose types are counted separately, i.e. (1) first doses administered as a part of a two-dose vaccination, (2) second doses administered as part of a two-dose vaccination, and (3) single-dose vaccines administered. <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 requires two doses for a resident to be fully vaccinated. Each dose is recorded separately in its respective column. Other vaccines, such as Johnson & Johnson, would only require a single dose to be considered fully vaccinated. 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 vaccine doses administered on a given day. To count the number of individuals fully vaccinated on a given day, use the NEW_SERIES_COMPLETED column. To count the number of individuals vaccinated (with any dose) for the first time on a given day, use the NEW_RECIPIENTS 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 and Deaths Summarized by Geography

    data.sfgov.org | Last Updated 2021-09-28T12:39:01.000Z

    <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. They are not, however, the same thing. ZCTAs are areal representations of routes. <a href="https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/geography/guidance/geo-areas/zctas.html">Read how the Census develops ZCTAs on their website</a>. <em>Row included for Citywide case counts, incidence rate, and deaths</em> A single row is included that has the Citywide case counts and incidence rate. This can be used for comparisons. Citywide will capture all cases regardless of address quality. While some cases cannot be mapped to sub-areas like Census Tracts, ongoing data quality efforts result in improved mapping on a rolling bases.

    COVID-19 Deaths Over Time

    data.sfgov.org | Last Updated 2021-09-28T16:02:18.000Z

    <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. Use the <a href="https://data.sfgov.org/d/kkr3-wq7h">Deaths by Population Characteristics dataset</a> to see deaths by different subgroups including race/ethnicity, age, gender, and homelessness.

    COVID-19 Vaccines Given to San Franciscans by Geography

    data.sfgov.org | Last Updated 2021-09-27T19:45:37.000Z

    <strong>A. SUMMARY</strong> This dataset represents the COVID-19 vaccinations given to SF Residents summarized by the geographic region of their residential address. All vaccines given to SF residents are included, no matter where the vaccination took place (the vaccine may have been administered in San Francisco or outside of San Francisco). Data provides counts for people who have received at least one dose. <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). In order to estimate the percent of San Francisco residents vaccinated (as we do on the public dashboard at https://data.sfgov.org/stories/s/COVID-19-Vaccinations-Maps/uue2-6gdn/), we have included the 2019 5-year American Community Survey population estimate for all residents for each analysis neighborhood. (https://api.census.gov/data/2019/acs/acs5/groups/B01001.html) <strong>C. UPDATE PROCESS</strong> Updated daily via automated process <strong>D. HOW TO USE THIS DATASET</strong> This dataset contains counts for all San Franciscans who have received at least one dose (count_vaccinated), as well as counts for all San Franciscans who have received at least one dose from the SF Department of Public Health (count_vaccinated_by_dph). This data is grouped by San Franciscans’ analysis neighborhoods of residence.

    COVID-19 Cases Over Time

    data.sfgov.org | Last Updated 2021-09-28T16:02:22.000Z

    <strong>A. SUMMARY</strong> This dataset represents San Francisco COVID-19 positive confirmed cases by specimen collection date. Cases are included on the date the positive test was collected (the specimen collection date). Data is lagged by five days, meaning the most recent specimen collection 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> Case information is based on confirmed positive laboratory tests reported to the City. The City then completes quality assurance and other 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. <a href="https://data.sfgov.org/stories/s/San-Francisco-COVID-19-Data-Questions/nudz-9tg2/">Learn more</a>. Data are continually updated to maximize completeness of information and reporting on San Francisco residents with COVID-19. <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 cases and cumulative cases by specimen collection date. Specimen collection date is the date the positive test was collected (the date the person was tested). New cases are the count of cases where the positive tests were collected on that specific specimen collection date. Cumulative cases are the running total of all San Francisco cases up to the specimen collection date listed.
