  1. What a valuable academic and public health resource! It is also a valuable historic time capsule and a potential source of hard evidence about the real world effect of policy decisions made by our governors. I can see decades of important, multi-disciplinary research, scholarship, and instruction coming from this database. It also highlights how Prof, Raifman’s experience as a policy analyst comes into play – She had the experience to know what, in the sea of data, was crucially important for public health and safety. As a result, this data will be useful for future pan-catastrophes of many kinds. Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents with the world.
