Description of my final project

Project Name: Evaluating SVI as predictor of COVID in San Antonio

The CDC's social vulnerability index (SVI) predicts the vulnerability of a population in the event of an emergency or natural disaster. COVID is the first global pandemic since the development of this measure. We are evaluating the association between SVI score and COVID case count in San Antonio, TX. Feature engineering will examine the predictive value of categorical SVI score, SVI flags, and change in SVI. The goal is to determine which features best predict COVID cases by zip code within San Antonio.
