    Stokes, Andrew C., Dielle J. Lundberg, Jacob Bor, Irma T. Elo, Katherine Hempstead, Samuel H. Preston. 2021. Association of Health Care Factors With Excess Deaths Not Assigned to COVID-19 in the U.S. JAMA Network Open.

    "Approximately 20% of excess deaths in the US in 2020 were not reflected in COVID-19 death counts. These excess deaths included deaths caused by COVID-19 but not assigned to it as well as indirect deaths from other causes associated with delays in health care and the social and economic consequences of the pandemic. Prior research has documented differences in the percentage of excess deaths not assigned to COVID-19 at the state and county levels. In this study, we examined health care factors associated with excess deaths not assigned to COVID-19 at the county level."

  • Irma T. Elo (PSC/PARC Research Associate), Samuel H. Preston (PSC/PARC Research Associate), and Andrew Stokes (GGD Alumnus) co-authored a new article published in PLOS Medicine entitled, "COVID-19 and Excess Mortality in the United States: A County-level Analysis." Read more about it in the Boston University Press Release.

  • Sam Preston and Andrew Stokes have just published in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine. The full text of their new article "Prevalence and Trends in Lifetime Obesity in the U.S., 1988-2014" is now available online. Boston University, where Stokes teaches global health, has published a press release about their findings. Obesity affects the health of more than half of adults in the US and the PSC is proud to support the researchers investigating this epidemic.
