Inventory of COVID-19 Data and Information Resources

This year, the participating agencies of the Federal Interagency Forum on Aging-Related Statistics (Forum) collaborated to produce an inventory of data and resources that reflect the impact of COVID-19 on the well-being of older Americans. This inventory is intended to be a guide to specific data sources and related resources managed by members of the Forum that can provide insight on this very relevant and timely topic.

This page lists the selected datasets, reports, and other resources that are included in the inventory. The resources included in the inventory (and listed below) are categorized based on the sections that appear in the Aging Forum’s Older Americans chartbook: Population, Economics, Health Status, Health Risks and Behaviors, Health Care, and Environment. Additional information COVID-19-related survey questions and/or variables has been included for dataset entries. Please note that all entries reflect a point-in-time inventory of available data and information resources as of [RELEASE DATE: TBD].
