    Covid-19

    Overview

    Using Office for National Statistics weekly mortality data, this study estimates cumulative infection rates from Covid-19 in Great Britain by local authority districts (LADs) and council areas (CAs).

    The study uses a model-based approach to calculate cumulative infection rates from data on observed and expected Covid-19 deaths. The project investigates why infection rates vary across geographical units, finding infection rates depend on the population density and level of deprivation present in the area.

    The results suggest that people from lower socioeconomic groups in urban areas were most affected by the spread of coronavirus from March to June 2020.
