New Jersey COVID-19 Municipal Dataset
In New Jersey, it has been difficult to obtain official data about the number of positive COVID-19 tests in each municipality. However, many county health departments and other public sources report the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in municipalities each day. On April 22, 2020, Senator Walter Rand Institute for Public Affairs at Rutgers University began tracking these sources. This dataset is the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in municipalities throughout New Jersey on April 27, 2020; June 30, 2020; and December 13, 2020.
