Abstract:
This web service hosts COVID-19 statistics for the state of Montana by county. The data is derived from local health officials at the county level who report cases to the Montana Department of Health and Human Services. DPHHS tabulates case data and then gives the data to the Montana State Library to publish through this web service. The daily updates are managed by the Disaster and Emergency Service State Emergency Coordination Center. The feature service is comprised of Montana's county geography with attributes that summarize Total COVID-19 cases by age (10-year groups), by sex (M/F/U), new cases, total deaths, hospitalization count, total recovered and the number of total active cases. The two tables store various stats that include the total number of tests completed, and the number of new tests completed for individual test dates; and individual case data which includes age group, sex, county or residence and recovery status. Montana public health agencies and the Governor's Coronavirus task Force are actively working to limit the spread of novel coronavirus in Montana. The Montana State Library is aiding this effort by geo-enabling public health information and emergency response data to help decision-makers, State Emergency Coordination Center and the Governor's Coronavirus Task Force understand the spread of the disease.
Purpose:
Web service tabulating up-to-date data on COVID-19 cases in Montana counties.
