Table 5 Misinformation via social connections.

Misinformation via social connections.. The dependent variable is Social distancing. Restrictions is the number of the five restriction types currently adopted in the county. SCI-weighted Low education is the SCI-weighted average of the proportion of people with less than a bachelor degree in the counties that the county itself is connected to, SCI-weighted Trump vote is the SCI-weighted average of the Trump vote share in the 2016 presidential election in the counties that the county itself is connected to, and SCI-weighted Climate denial is the SCI-weighted average of the share of people saying climate change is not happening in the counties that the county itself is connected to. All SCI-weighted variables exclude the counties located in the same state. N cases is the current number of confirmed cases in the county. Heteroscedasticity-consistent SEs, double-clustered by county and day, are shown in parentheses. Significance levels: *0.1, **0.05, and ***0.01.
