Adjusting for population, there have been a total of 181 COVID-19-related deaths for every 100,000 Americans nationwide. In Indiana, deaths attributable to the coronavirus per capita are even more common than they are nationwide. Across the state, 13,696 people have died from the coronavirus, equal to about 205 deaths for every 100,000 people. Of all states -- and Washington D.C. -- Indiana has the 13th highest death rate per capita.

Any number of factors contribute to variations in COVID-19 fatalities per capita across the United States. One of them is the per capita infection rate. Just as the number of deaths attributable to the virus per capita is higher in Indiana than it is nationwide, COVID-19 infections per capita are too.

To date, there have been 747,447 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Indiana, equal to 11,169 infections per 100,000 people -- compared to 10,109 infections per 100,000 people nationwide.

Though it is not always the case, states with higher than average COVID-19 deaths per capita are often also home to larger high-risk populations. One such group is retirement-age Americans, who are at least 90 times more likely to die from the virus if infected than those in the 18 to 29 age group. In Indiana, 16.1% of the population are 65 and older. Nationwide, 16.5% of the population fall into that age group.

All COVID-19 data used in the story is current as of June 10, 2021.

These are all the counties in Indiana where COVID-19 is slowing (and where it's still getting worse).
