How to read Covid data now

Higher test positivity rates are a sign that many infections are not reported — even if they are tested for at home. This results in a more severe undercount of cases. The number of hospitalized patients with Covid is a more reliable measure because testing is more consistent in hospitals.

About the data

In data for Nebraska, The Times primarily relies on reports from the state, as well as health districts or county governments that often report ahead of the state. Nebraska typically has data updates several times a week. Prior to May 15, 2021, it released new data daily. The state reports cases and deaths based on a person’s permanent or usual residence.

The Times has identified reporting anomalies or methodology changes in the data.

More about reporting anomalies or changes
  • Nov. 11, 2022: The Times began including death certificate data reconciled by the C.D.C., resulting in a one-day increase in total deaths.
  • Oct. 28, 2022: In data reported to the federal government, Nebraska removed many cases and deaths that had not been assigned to a county.
  • Oct. 24, 2022 to Oct. 27, 2022: New data was unavailable for Nebraska while the federal government transitioned to less frequent updates.
  • May 11, 2022: The cumulative number of cases decreased in many Nebraska counties.
  • April 22, 2022: Nebraska adjusted its case counts for many counties, resulting in one-day increases in some counties and decreases in others.
  • Feb. 28, 2022: Nebraska added many cases from recent months representing people who were infected more than once.
  • Dec. 31, 2021: Nebraska did not announce new cases and deaths for the New Year's holiday.
  • Dec. 24, 2021: Nebraska did not announce new cases and deaths for the Christmas holiday.
  • Nov. 25, 2021: Nebraska did not announce new cases and deaths for the Thanksgiving holiday.
  • Sept. 28, 2021: Nebraska began reporting probable deaths, resulting in a one-day increase in deaths.
  • Sept. 20, 2021: Nebraska resumed reporting cases at the county level, resulting in a one-day increase and decreases for many counties.
  • June 4, 2021 to Sept. 28, 2021: State and local officials are no longer reporting deaths by county.
  • May 28, 2021: The Times began using local data for many Nebraska counties after the state stopped reporting county-level data on May 26, resulting in one-day increases and decreases in cases and deaths.
  • Jan. 20, 2021: Nebraska announced a large number of cases after completing data system maintenance.
  • Jan. 8, 2021: Nebraska removed deaths previously announced on Nov. 7 after determining the cause was not Covid-related, resulting in a one-day decrease.
  • Jan. 7, 2021: Nebraska announced deaths that were removed the following day.
  • Counts for Douglas County include cases brought to the state from the Diamond Princess cruise ship.

The tallies on this page include cases and deaths that have been identified by public health officials as probable coronavirus patients through antigen testing.

Confirmed cases and deaths, which are widely considered to be an undercount of the true toll, are counts of individuals whose coronavirus infections were confirmed by a molecular laboratory test. Probable cases and deaths count individuals who meet criteria for other types of testing, symptoms and exposure, as developed by national and local governments.

Governments often revise data or report a single-day large increase in cases or deaths from unspecified days without historical revisions, which can cause an irregular pattern in the daily reported figures. The Times is excluding these anomalies from seven-day averages when possible. For agencies that do not report data every day, variation in the schedule on which cases or deaths are reported, such as around holidays, can also cause an irregular pattern in averages. The Times uses an adjustment method to vary the number of days included in an average to remove these irregularities.
