ABSTRACT

Spatial Distribution of New York State's Older Population: Let's Keep New York's Older Adults Safe and Healthy During the Coronavirus Pandemic   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "The emergent infectious respiratory disease (COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]), caused by the novel coronavirus, is of grave concern for all, and especially for older adults. In addition to following the New York State guidance for protecting yourself and your family, social distancing and avoiding unnecessary contacts can help our communities to protect older adults. Inspired by the work of Professor Kenneth Johnson at the University of New Hampshire, Carsey School of Public Policy, we replicated the New Hampshire maps described in his research brief published on March 17, 2020. Similar to New Hampshire, providing health care for the coronavirus may be complicated because older adults represent a larger share of New York State's population in some areas than in others."
