This report describes the aggregation and anonymization process applied to the initial version of COVID-19 Search Trends symptoms dataset (published at https://goo.gle/covid19symptomdataset on September 2, 2020), a publicly available dataset that shows aggregated, anonymized trends in Google searches for symptoms (and some related topics). The anonymization process is designed to protect the daily symptom search activity of every user with $\varepsilon$-differential privacy for $\varepsilon… Expand

The Geographic Spread of Covid-19 Correlates with Structure of Social Networks as Measured by Facebook
TLDR
Anonymized and aggregated data from Facebook is used to show that areas with stronger social ties to two early COVID-19 "hotspots" generally have more confirmed CO VID-19 cases as of March 30, 2020. Expand
Improved Prediction of COVID-19 Transmission and Mortality Using Google Search Trends for Symptoms in the United States
TLDR
This work proposes a stacked long short-term memory (SLSTM) architecture for predicting COVID-19 confirmed and death cases using historical time series data combined with auxiliary time seriesData from the Google CO VID-19 search trends symptoms dataset, and finds that the Google search trends for "pneumonia," "shortness of breath," and "fever" are the most informative search trendsFor predicting COvid-19 transmission.

JUE Insight: College student travel contributed to local COVID-19 spread☆
TLDR
Estimates imply that counties with more early spring break students had a higher growth rate of cases than counties with fewer earlySpring break students, and evidence is presented that viral infection transmission due to college student travel also occurred prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Expand
