MAPS IN THE NEWS:
College students across the country are starting classes, some online and some in person. This topological map from The Wall Street Journal shows the number of out-of-state students that generally attend colleges and universities in each state -- represented by the size of the gray circle (using fall 2018 data) -- and the proportion of those students who come from states with worse COVID-19 infection rates -- represented by the gold circle (using Aug. 2-16 data). New York, for example, attracts a large number of out-of-state students, the majority of whom would normally be coming from states with worse infection rates than New York's. Florida also attracts a large number of out-of-state students, but given Florida's high infection rate from Aug. 2-16, those students would be coming from states with lower COVID infection rates.
