Hospitalization Nowcast Hub

A collaborative nowcasting project



This repository assembles nowcasts of the seven-day hospitalization incidence due to COVID-19 in Germany in a standardized format. The repository is run by members of the Chair of Econometrics and Statistics at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the Computational Statistics Group at Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, see below. It is based on data from Robert Koch Institute which we have processed for the purpose of nowcasting.

An interactive dashboard and background information can be found here:
