About the data

In data for New York City, the Times relies on reports from both city and state health departments. The figures here may not match health department statistics. New York City typically releases new data on weekdays. Counts on Mondays or Tuesdays may include totals from the weekend. Cases and deaths are reported based on a person’s permanent or usual residence.

The Times has identified reporting anomalies or methodology changes in the data.

More about reporting anomalies or changes
  • Dec. 25, 2021: New York did not announce new cases and deaths for the Christmas holiday.
  • Aug. 11, 2021: New York City released three days of data at once, resulting in a high one-day total for the state.
  • Aug. 9, 2021 to Aug. 11, 2021: New York City released three days of data at once on Aug. 11 after the city was unable to update for two days because of technical issues.
  • March 24, 2021: After a multiday disruption in reporting data, the New York City health department reported several days’ worth of data, leading to a spike in reported cases and deaths in New York State.
  • March 22, 2021: The number of cases and deaths reported in the state was artificially low because New York City did not report new data. The city health department said the reason was ongoing issues in receiving and processing data from New York State.
  • March 21, 2021: The number of cases and deaths reported in the state was artificially low because New York City did not report new data. The city also announced that some counts for the most recent week were artificially low.
  • March 18, 2021 to March 24, 2021: New York City had a multiday disruption in reporting new data.
  • Dec. 7, 2020: The New York City health department began reporting probable cases. It also revised how it assigns cases to zip codes throughout the city.
  • Aug. 20, 2020: New York City removed four previously reported deaths after reviewing records.
  • Aug. 6, 2020: Our database changed to record deaths of New York City residents instead of deaths that took place in New York City.
  • June 30, 2020: New York City added a backlog of deaths from unspecified dates.
  • May 6, 2020: New York State added many deaths from unspecified days after reconciling data from nursing homes and other care facilities.
  • April 19, 2020: New York State added a backlog of confirmed deaths from April 17 and April 18.
  • April 6, 2020: The Times began using deaths reported by the New York State Department of Health instead of the city's health department.

The tallies on this page include probable and confirmed cases and deaths.

Confirmed cases and deaths, which are widely considered to be an undercount of the true toll, are counts of individuals whose coronavirus infections were confirmed by a molecular laboratory test. Probable cases and deaths count individuals who meet criteria for other types of testing, symptoms and exposure, as developed by national and local governments.

Governments often revise data or report a single-day large increase in cases or deaths from unspecified days without historical revisions, which can cause an irregular pattern in the daily reported figures. The Times is excluding these anomalies from seven-day averages when possible. For agencies that do not report data every day, variation in the schedule on which cases or deaths are reported, such as around holidays, can also cause an irregular pattern in averages. The Times uses an adjustment method to vary the number of days included in an average to remove these irregularities.
