Another great publication by one of our Community members @Gordon_Ngai! Big congratulations to the entire team!
They used SafeGraph data to assess the impact New York State’s “hot spotting” COVID-19 strategy had on mobility among NYC residents in late 2020. The hot spotting strategy assigns statuses to modified zip code areas based on the areas’ COVID-19 cases and hospital capacity. Their chosen metrics, Average Median Percentage Time Home and Device-Weighted Average Median Percentage Time Home, had a significant relationship with the hot spotting status of a given area. Their work digs into one of the most location-specific non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) implemented in response to COVID-19. While many NPIs were implemented at the state, county, or city level, this work provides insight into the value of a more fine-grained approach.
