DAILY MORTALITY

What is the recent mortality impact of COVID-19 as per the officially reported data? These indicators track daily developments in the absolute death toll, the per capita mortality rate and the share in global mortality. The global Top 50 in absolute and relative terms are also shown. All numbers are 7-day trailing averages.

CUMULATIVE MORTALITY

What is the cumulative death toll attributed to COVID-19 over the full course of the pandemic as per the officially reported data? These indicators capture in cumulative terms the absolute death toll, the per capita mortality rate and the share in global mortality. The global Top 50 in absolute and relative terms are also shown.

DAILY EXCESS MORTALITY

These indicators present daily excess death estimates sourced from The Economist's excess death model. They capture the gap between the total number of deaths that occur for any reason and the amount that would be expected under normal circumstances.

CUMULATIVE EXCESS MORTALITY

These indicators present cumulative excess death estimates sourced from The Economist's excess death model. They capture the gap between the total number of deaths that occur for any reason and the amount that would be expected under normal circumstances.

IMPACT OF DEMOGRAPHY

Assuming all other factors are equal, what do differences in demography (population size and age structure) imply for the distribution of cumulative mortality?

IMPACT OF DATA QUALITY

Given inequality in data quality across countries, what could the distribution of cumulative mortality look like?
