Indigenous Americans: Percent of COVID-19 deaths and population, through May 19, 2020
For all U.S. states with available data and Washington, D.C., in cases where 10 or more known deaths have occurred. Sorted from most over-represented to most under-represented.
Includes data from the 7 states of Arizona, California, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico and Oklahoma. These states are those reporting data that have experienced 10 or more known deaths among Indigenous residents. The states of Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin are also reporting Indigenous deaths, but have experienced fewer than 10 deaths each. However, those suppressed data are reflected in the "ALL KNOWN DEATHS" figure of 403, an undercount of Indigenous lives lost nationally due to the uneven data reporting across states. The remaining outstanding states are either not reporting Indigenous deaths (tallying them in "Other") or have experienced no Indigenous deaths. States employ varying methods for reporting race and ethnicity data. Population figures shown here align with method used by each state.
