COVID Community Data Lab

Analysis of COVID's Impact Through June 2022

Launched in April 2020 by Boston Indicators and the Center for Housing Data at the Massachusetts Housing Partnership, the COVID-19 Community Data Lab was created to capture and analyze the wide-ranging social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on Greater Boston. Throughout the pandemic, the CCDL grew to include three parts: 1) research briefs on topics ranging from housing stability to traffic patterns; 2) a repository of charts and graphs analyzing a range of real-time data sources; and 3) the Seizing the Moment: Proposals for a Just and Equitable Recovery series that present concrete ideas for building back better, written by a range of community voices.

As of June 2022, the CCDL is no longer being updated by Boston Indicators or the Center for Housing Data. Indicators will continue to publish work related to the impacts of COVID-19 on the region, but it will no longer be directly linked to the CCDL. We thank all of the community partners that made this ambitious research effort possible, especially the Barr Foundation for their early support.
