Check out this work by @Emily_McGill_University titled, Assessing Early Public Response to COVID-19-Related Restrictions in New York City Using Spatial Analysis of Urban Mobility Data. Congratulations Emily for completing yours honors thesis - great work!
Several studies of social distancing policies and adherence have a wide scope, comparing metropolitan cities to each other or looking at rural vs urban behavior. In this paper, Emily zooms in on New York City to analyze the relationship between social distancing behavior and socio-demographic factors. This approach relies on less assumptions about potential confounders, such as local policies, weather, local infection rates, or even cost of living. She assesses the relationships between socio-demographic factors (age, race, transport method to work, etc) and four measures of social distance activity (travel distance, home dwell, non-home dwell, and percent of time spent at home).
