Movement Range Data


Movement Range Maps inform researchers and public health experts about how populations are responding to physical distancing measures.

These datasets have two different metrics: Change in Movement : The Change in Movement metric looks at how much people are moving around and compares it to a baseline period that predates most social distancing measures. Stay Put: The Stay Put metric looks at the fraction of the population that appears to stay within a small area surrounding their home for an entire day.
