This map shows current total case count for each census tract, as well as the increase in cases over the past two weeks, from November 26 through December 10.
The data behind the map only indicates a number of cases and deaths in a specific tract if there have been five or more. We have three tracts that have at least five deaths in Dane County since the pandemic began — 107.01 on Madison’s south side; 114.01 and 114.02 (which is a new area to the map since last week) which encompasses the Town of Burke and some parts of Madison’s far east side and on the west side with 4.08, which includes ares on S Gammon Road, Mineral Point Road and Whitney Way. Every other tract in the county indicates fewer than five deaths, so the map does not show where the county’s other deaths have taken place.
The data comes from the state Department of Health Services map, which shows current case counts by census tract. The DHS map does not show historical data, however. We are able to provide comparisons between past and current case counts because we’ve been tracking cases in each neighborhood since early May.
Each pin on the map represents a census tract. You can zoom in on the map to find your neighborhood. Clicking or tapping on a pin will allow you to see:
- Description of the neighborhood
- Number of cases as of 11/19
- Number of cases as of 12/3
- Difference in the number of cases between those two dates
- Number of cases per 1,000 residents as of 11/26
- Number of cases per 1,000 residents as of 12/10
- Difference in the number of cases per 1,000 residents between those two dates
- The percentage change between those two dates
Additionally, the percent increase in each tract is visible on the map without clicking the pin — just zoom in to see the increase in cases for each neighborhood.
