The State-Level Trends

Population data sources: Census, UIDAI.

How has the pandemic impacted the various states of India?

The two-letter abbreviations of the states are the same as the ones used in registration plates, with the exception of Telangana, where, I use ‘TG’ instead of ‘TS’.

Addendum

NSDP data is unavailable for Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Daman and Diu, and Lakshadweep. Hence these UT’s have been excluded from this correlational plot. The UTs of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh are aggregated as one, to ensure comparability with 2018 and 2019 data (pre-abrogation of Article 370).
