The COVID‑19 pandemic has impacted socio-demographic groups differently, which can lead to widening health inequalities. For example, researchers have observed that people from low socioeconomic status and racial minority populations are more likely to be adversely impacted by COVID-19. The overall goal of this project is to estimate the extent to which public health funding, services, and programming aimed at decreasing social inequities during the pandemic has mitigated the risk for COVID‑19 infection, hospitalization, mortality, and being unvaccinated, particularly among people from historically excluded populations.
