COVID-19 Charts & Graphs

PLEASE NOTE: The Dashboard and Charts & Graphs will NOT be updated on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day or New Year's Day. On the Dashboard side of our reporting, the case information on the day after those holidays will reflect the total of two days. On the Charts & Graphs side, we will still be able to report the information by day.

Based on input received from the public, we have organized our Charts & Graphs page by breaking down the information into four categories:

Daily Snapshot

NEW FEATURE - State Department Of Health Color Code Metrics

Unique Individuals Positivity Rates

Cases & Testing Trendlines

Historical Data


ABOUT OUR DATA

Positive Cases are the number of INDIVIDUALS who GET TESTED and have a positive test result. If an individual has multiple tests and receives multiple positive test results, it only counts as ONE positive case. Antibody tests and postitive results from antibody tests are NOT reported as positive cases.

State Department Of Health Color Code Metrics

The Indiana State Department Of Health has developed a scoring process for counties to better track COVID-19 community spread using 7 Day All Tests Positivity Rate and Weekly Cases Per 100,000 Residents. While they only provide the updated color code map on their website once a week on Wednesdays for the prior week, we have provided the following charts below to monitor the daily changes in those metrics.

For a complete description of the color code process used by ISDH, GO HERE.

ALL TESTS 7 Day Positivity Rate Rolling Average

This information is obtained from the Indiana State Department of Health Dashboard. The rate is based on ALL TESTS, not individuals tested. Because of the ISDH methods for reporting, the data in this graph will lag 7 to 8 days behind the current date. The positivity rate may change as additional test results - both positive & negative - are submitted to ISDH over time.

Weekly Average Of New Cases Per 100,000 Porter County Residents By Day

This graph shows the weekly average of new cases per 100,000 Porter County Residents by day. The average is calculated by  identifying all new positive cases that were reported in the prior seven days. That number is then divided by Porter County's total population (170,389) and multiplied by 100,000.
