Task 4

Identifying Mobility and Health Impact Trends due to COVID-19 – Phase 2/Expanded

This task will build on the results from Task 3 and provide further insight toward the project’s research questions, specifically considering the inter-relationships between the trends in different health and mobility datasets. Statistical and machine learning methods will be explored to properly account for program time lags and intervention points. Spatial methodologies for identifying areas within North Carolina with the highest risk will be considered.
