This map shows current total case count for each census tract, as well as the increase in cases over the past two weeks.
The data behind the map only indicates a number of cases and deaths in a specific tract if there have been five or more. For the first time ever, one tract in Dane County — the tract that includes the Town of Dane, DeForest and Windsor — now has a total of five deaths confirmed since the pandemic began. Every other tract in the county indicates fewer than five deaths, so the map does not show where the county’s other 52 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 10/29
- Number of cases as of 11/12
- Difference in the number of cases between those two dates
- Number of cases per 1,000 residents as of 10/29
- Number of cases per 1,000 residents as of 11/12
- 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.
