COVID-19 Reported Patient Impact and Hospital Capacity by State

The following dataset provides state-aggregated data for hospital utilization. These are derived from reports with facility-level granularity across two main sources: (1) HHS TeleTracking, and (2) reporting provided directly to HHS Protect by state/territorial health departments on behalf of their healthcare facilities.

The file will be updated daily and provides the latest values reported by each facility within the last four days. This allows for a more comprehensive picture of the hospital utilization within a state by ensuring a hospital is represented, even if they miss a single day of reporting.

No statistical analysis is applied to account for non-response and/or to account for missing data.

The below table displays one value for each field (i.e., column). Sometimes, reports for a given facility will be provided to both HHS TeleTracking and HHS Protect. When this occurs, to ensure that there are not duplicate reports, deduplication is applied: specifically, HHS selects the TeleTracking record provided directly by the facility over the state-provided data to HHS Protect.

where's the beds capacity column?

Thank you for your feedback - The file and corresponding data dictionary has been updated to include capacity information. Please comment again if you have additional questions.

I noticed this dataset now has an "entry_id" column that is not described in data dictionary. Please remove or describe; I think remove would be fine because I can't imagine what this is useful for with what I know now.

Thank you for your feedback -- This column has been removed in version 2.0 of the data dictionary for this file.

I am doing research on Data Sets.

Thank you for your comment.

HealthData.gov is a great resource, and has a built-in comment feature on many datasets to inquire further. Best of luck in your research.
