Map Series I: The Mann-Kendall Test for Trends of Covid-19 Deaths
Type of Map: Spatial Temporal
Spatial Bins: US County
Temporal Step: 5 Day Span
Statistic: Maximum Covid-19 Deaths
Neighborhood Time Step: 1
Test Type: Mann-Kendall
This series looks at the Covid-19 Deaths over time to assess if there are increasing or decreasing trends. As you can see, there has yet to be an identified decreasing trend as of 100 days of the pandemic in the US.
Theoretically, if we continue to use this map series, we would expect to see more greens as the number of confirmed cases decreases; however there is ample evidence to confirm the Covid-19 virus is still increasing depsite reports of the flattening of the curve. The key is to break these areas into smaller geographic areas to view the trends more precisely.
