"How to get better COVID-19 infection data without universal testing" - Boston Globe. 04/15/2020

David E. Bloom, professor of economics and demography and David Canning, professor of population sciences at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health discuss a scientifically sound, far less costly approach at our disposal: conducting COVID-19 tests on a representative sample of the population. The authors propose adding their pre-tested supplemental questionnaire to the extant American Community Survey administered by the US Census Bureau.
