Ways to interpret the data

The colors on the above graph each represent a particular variant appearing in week's COVID-19 test results analyzed for sequencing. The height of the colored section reflects the number of times that variant was observed. In other words, the taller the section, the greater the number of times that variant appeared. The shorter the section, the fewer the number of times that variant was observed in test results.

The "Other" category encompasses all variations that each constitute less than 5% of the total, combining them into a single group for simplified analysis and reporting.

Why doesn't our data match the CDC?

Our data is based on test results sequenced in Delaware laboratories while the CDC data is surveyed from labs throughout the United States. The variants most dominant in our region may not be the same as in other parts of the country.

Ways to interpret the data

When showing data as percentages, the chart includes gray bars next to each colored bar for comparison. The gray bar represents the percentage of the total population that falls into that demographic category. The colored bar represents the percentage of cases in that category.

When the gray bar is shorter than the colored bar, it means that the demographic group is getting COVID-19 at a higher rate than other demographic groups. When the gray bar is longer than the colored bar, the group is getting COVID-19 at a below-average rate.
