The COVID-19 U.S. State Policy (CUSP) Database: An Introduction

Dr. Julia Raifman of the Boston University School of Public Health, along with her team Alexandra Skinner and Will Raderman, provide an overview of the COVID-19 U.S. State Policy (CUSP) Database. During the session, Dr. Raifman conducts a guided tour of the CUSP website and database, highlights ways to access and use the database, and some of the learnings on what which policies worked well and which didn't in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. She also discusses some of the disparities in both how Black, Latinx, and Native American people experienced the pandemic and were impacted by the various social and economic policies enacted during the pandemic.
