Few studies on excess deaths during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic in the US have documented how excess mortality varies across population subgroups.1,2 Using time-series models, we estimated excess deaths in California between March and August 2020 by age, sex, race/ethnicity, and educational level.
