Methodology

Our A.I. platform ingests and analyzes policy data from official government websites and identifies proposed policies related to coronavirus based on the associated text of legislation and Federal Register publications. The data are updated multiple times per day, but the official government sources themselves sometimes have a lag of several hours or longer.

The charts display cumulative activity over time. This means that each point is the sum of the number of actions taken, bills published, etc taken on or before that day. We measure time from January 22, 2020, the date of the first confirmed COVID-19 case in the United States. No legislative or regulatory action had been taken prior to that date.
