It has been a little over 3 weeks since I last ran some numbers. Let's see how the numbers have changed.

Methodology: Using worldometer, I'm looking at each state's death rate change from 12/6 to 12/29. I'm going to rank all of the states by death rate and indicate how much their death rate has changed in the last three weeks. For example, New Jersey has the highest death rate. Their death rate is currently 2,130 per million. Three weeks ago it was 1,963 per million. So that's a +167 difference.

After doing this with all states, we should get a real good idea of what's happening right now.

#1: New Jersey (+167)
#2: New York (+141)
#3: Massachusetts (+184)
#4: North Dakota (+353) (Up from 8th)
#5: Connecticut (+219)
#6: Rhode Island (+327)
#7: South Dakota (+402) (Up from 9th)

#8: Louisiana (+182)
#9: Mississippi (+259)
#10: Illinois (+283)
#11: Michigan (+265)
#12: Iowa (+363) (Up from 19th)
#13: Pennsylvania (+319) (Up from 16th)

#14: Indiana (+274)
#15: Arkansas (+326) (Up from 18th)
#16: Arizona (+236)
#17: New Mexico (+317) (Up from 20th)
#18: Georgia (+93)
#19: South Carolina (+133)
#20: Florida (+108)
#21: Tennessee (+265) (Up from 27th)
#22: Nevada (+233) (Up from 25th)
#23: Alabama (+175) (Up from 24th)
#24: Maryland (+163)
#25: Texas (+152)
#26: Missouri (+211)
#27: Minnesota (+226) (Up from 28th)
#28: Delaware (+119)
#29: Montana (+192)
#30: Kansas (+262) (Up from 31st)
#31: Nebraska (+216) (Up from 32nd)
#32: Wisconsin (+185)
#33: Colorado (+231) (Up from 34th)
#34: Idaho (+202) (Up from 35th)
#35: Ohio (+152)
#36: West Virginia (+253) (Up from 40th)
#37: Wyoming (+256) (Up from 42nd)
#38: North Carolina (+101)
#39: California (+123)
#40: Oklahoma (+134)
#41: Kentucky (+119)
#42: Virginia (+84)
#43: New Hampshire (+130)
#44: Washington (+70)
#45: Utah (+92)
#46: Oregon (+101)
#47: Alaska (+79)
#48: Maine (+79) (Up from 49th)
#49: Vermont (+81) (Up from 50th)
#50: Hawaii (+17)

Over the last 3 weeks, the fastest growing death rates are coming from:

1) South Dakota (+402)
2) Iowa (+363)
3) North Dakota (+353)
4) Rhode Island (+327)
5) Arkansas (+326)
6) Pennsylvania (+319)

Over the last 3 weeks, the slowest growing death rates are coming from:

50) Hawaii (+17)
49) Washington (+70)
48) Maine (+79)
47) Alaska (+79)
46) Vermont (+81)
45) Virginia (+84)

Some interesting notes:

The first thing I noticed is that almost all of the states have done worse during this 3-week period compared to the last one. With the exception of three states, everyone else had more deaths this period compared to the last one.

South Dakota is still doing the worst and North Dakota is also near the top of this list as they have been for a while now. Iowa is getting bad. Iowa, Rhode Island, Arkansas, and Pennsylvania are all new to the worst. Each of these 4 new states has had a history of being among the worst and it appears that they have re-emerged with a new wave.

The best-performing states are more consistent. Hawaii, Maine, Vermont, and Virginia are still among the best. Newcomers Washington and Alaska are also doing very well. There's an interesting dynamic emerging in the North East which contains some of the best-performing states and some of the worst-performing states.
