Analysis / Bias

In review, USAFacts provides statistics and data on various topics ranging from Covid-19, Healthcare, Immigration, and several other topics. Low biased sourcing from government sources and agencies are the norm. USAFacts does not use any other data as they explain on their FAQ page “We rely solely on government data for consistency and to screen for bias. Data curated by think tanks, academics, or any outlet expressing a viewpoint about the data is not reliably nonpartisan.” The wording used in headlines and reports is low biased and neutral such as this There was one new COVID-19 case for every 76 Americans in November. During the Covid-19 pandemic, USAFacts has provided accurate fact-based statistics that are credible such as this COVID-19 Impact and Recovery. In general, the information provided is highly factual and reported with minimal bias.
