The goal of this research was to study the effect of demographic and economic data on Covid case rates in San Diego County. Data were obtained from the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) and the statistical software R was used for the analysis. The results found that Covid case rates varied greatly by zip codes. In particular, regions with more college educated people had lower Covid case rates, while regions with higher poverty rate had higher Covid case rates. In addition, zip codes with higher Covid case rates tended to have more Hispanics and Blacks.
