Inequality in the impact of COVID-19 on the labour market

31 July 2020

Nuffield Associate Abi Adams-Prassl, DPhil student Marta Golin and co-authors use real-time survey responses in the UK, US and Germany to assess the inequalities of the impact of the pandemic on the labour market and find that those existing inequalities were further widened in the UK and US especially.

Abi, Marta and co-authors also explored the impact of lockdown on the gender gap in mental health more specifically for VOX EU ('Lockdowns widen the gender gap in mental health', 27 April 2021).
