What do the vaccination charges appear to be within the largest U.S. cities? In these cities, how do the traits of people in neighborhoods with low vs. excessive vaccination charges differ?

To reply this query, a paper by Sacarny and Daw (2021) use information from 9 giant US cities: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Diego, and Dallas. Particularly, they collect information on COVID-19 vaccination and loss of life charges for these cites from well being authority web sites and sociodemographic info from the American Neighborhood Survey (ACS).

They discover that neighborhood with excessive vaccination charges have: (i) extra Whites and Asians and fewer Blacks and Hispanics, (ii) extra individuals who obtained a bachelor’s diploma or greater, and (iii) greater earnings ranges, (iv) a better share of people aged 65 and above. Unsurprisingly, COVID-19 deaths are decrease within the extremely vaccinated neighborhoods in these cities.
