Van Gent en Antwerpen tot Beringen: corona sluipt door armste wijken [De Tijd]

The newspaper De Tijd used data on COVID-19 incidence at statistical sector level from the Vlaamse Zorgatlas, and correlated these data against deciles of several social indicators. The analyses showed that the 10% most deprived statistical sectors, both in terms of income, ethnic background, family size, population density, and population age structure, showed significantly higher incidences than the 90% other statistical sectors.

The data analysis, titled "Van Gent en Antwerpen tot Beringen: corona sluipt door armste wijken", is available via https://www.tijd.be/dossiers/coronavirus/van-gent-en-antwerpen-tot-beringen-corona-sluipt-door-armste-wijken/10243799.html.

A summary of the results, titled "Meeste coronabesmettingen in allerarmste wijken", is available via https://www.tijd.be/dossiers/coronavirus/meeste-coronabesmettingen-in-allerarmste-wijken/10243789.html.
