Using a user-friendly API, the Dashboard allows the users to easily focus on specific states and counties of interest and leverages infographics to present data about the selected area of interest in a visual, clear manner. Graphs of mortality and incidence rates are also available, allowing the user to compare counties’ rates as well as compare to the national rate.
