October 2020 Mortality Data Update

As of October 15, I have still not received any replies from Governor Hogan’s office to my formal information request sent in late May. “Most specifically, I am requesting a list of public health studies that informed policies ordering “all non-essential businesses and other establishments” [close], and “requiring all persons to stay at home” outside of essential needs (Order Number 20-03-30-01).”

Over recent months, I have researched many deeply troubling topics related to the COVID-19 pandemic. But for now, here are some fresh collections of raw data which I wanted to inform my opinions and risk assessments on our collective situation.

All data presented here is from the CDC and/or the Census Bureau — except the mortality and population data for Maryland before 1968, which came from the MD Department of Health. I would love to find similar historical data for D.C., Florida, and Arizona, if anyone can find them. I have done my best to get this 100% accurate, but please feel free to check my work and offer any corrections.

After gathering this data for the United States as a whole, I ran the numbers for four~states. I might do more states in the future, when I attempt to indicate policy interventions for a few case studies.

It’s harder than necessary to put live data in a greater context than the past five years. If pseudoscience continues to drive the policy makers who impose laws over me, then I’ll have to build software to track this layer of authoritarian technocracy. Please spare me of such work, society, there are hundreds of other gifts I would rather give you. ;-p <3
