Weather-related outages in Texas have resulted in significant case and fatality reporting delays. It's likely that winter storms across the country have partially resulted in artificially low numbers.

As we’ve shared, The COVID Tracking Project will be winding down data compilation on Mar 7. Before then, we’re taking a close look at federal data sources. Today we’re sharing the first installment in a series of analyses on federal testing data: covidtracking.com/analysis-updat…

As we've mentioned, we’re winding down our data compilation on Mar 7. We believe that many federal datasets are now very good and ready to use. We want to help everyone understand how to find and use the federal numbers, so today, we’re kicking off our federal data 101 series.
First up in our how-to series: Finding and using @HHSGov’s hospitalizations data, by @anthropoco and @cat_pollack.

One of the greatest advantages of the @HHSGov’s hospitalization data is that it’s much more standardized than our compiled data could ever be. Lots of raw data from the dataset is publicly available for download. (Be warned: it is a VERY large file.)
