Throughout fall 2020 Community Information Now has compiled and analyzed a wealth of extant data to shed light on differences in how COVID-19 is affecting Bexar County neighborhoods and groups of people in terms of health, income, employment and business, housing, and other community priorities. This preliminary research is also intended to show how the pandemic is worsening (or just changing) the inequity and injustice already shouldered by marginalized communities.
Bexar County’s health disparities are best seen by looking through both a demographic lens (race/ethnicity, sex, age group) and a place lens (census tract, ZIP code tabulation area). Take a look at each section below to learn more about disparities in COVID-19 burden and other community issues.
