Google’s mobility report looked at phone tracking data from the day of February 5th, 2020 then compared it to the day of March 31st, 2020 in order to examine percentage change. Using that percentage change data we mapped it by county and state in the visualizations to see which areas were affected the most.
Google’s COVID-19 Community Mobility Reports allows us to see how a community is moving around during this time period. Google obtains insights in these reports using aggregated, anonymized sets of data from users who have turned on the Location History setting on the cellular devices.
