Data in the time of COVID-19: Lessons learned
As we enter year two of the coronavirus pandemic, we know that to meet the as-yet undefined challenges of tomorrow, we need data. Recently we asked members of Tableau’s COVID-19 Advisory Board what they felt were the biggest data lessons learned since the beginning of the pandemic. What they learned was both practical and provocative.

Back to school
As James Madison University (JMU) prepared for autumn 2020 classes, freshman parent and Tableau partner Lee Feinberg volunteered to help improve the school’s Stop The Spread dashboard. JMU’s commitment to data transparency, through both university- and self-reported cases, has contributed to more than 540,000 views of its COVID-19 dashboard as of February 2021.

COVID-19, Starbucks and the third place
The pandemic has forced businesses to shift real-life activities to the digital world. For Starbucks, finding ways to still connect in a human-centric way required turning to data. They quickly developed a top-line report to deliver the right data points to the right teams to gain a holistic view of what was happening in near real-time. It democratised the data and gave everyone the information they needed to make decisions and move forward.

As you use COVID-19 data, it’s important to remember that, while the underlying data comes from trusted sources, it’s difficult to accurately estimate the number of COVID-19 cases worldwide because of the vastly different approaches to both testing and reporting. Also remember, even data visualisations based on accurate data can be misleading.
