The Geography of Excess Deaths in England during the COVID-19 pandemic - new preprint
A new preprint by Richard Breen (Department of Sociology and Nuffield College, Oxford) and John Ermisch (Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science and Nuffield College, Oxford) has been published on medRxiv: "The Geography of Excess Deaths in England during the Covid-19 pandemic: Longer term impacts and monthly dynamics".
The first part of the paper studies the geographical impact of Covid-19 infection on age-standardised sex-specific excess death rates during the peak months of the pandemic so far, March through May 2020. The second part examines monthly mortality dynamics in relation to predictions from a spatial SIR (Susceptible, Infected, Recovered) model of infection introduced by Bisin and Moro (2020).
