COVID-19 showed that the ability to cope, recover and adapt to the pandemic and its social and economic consequences varies across population subgroups as well as institutional and geographical contexts. Researchers from IIASA and Wittgenstein Centre published the Fact Sheet that sheds light on the impact of the pandemic on people’s health, family dynamics, economies and migration.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about many societal challenges. People’s health, family dynamics, economies and migration were all deeply affected. One of the key challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic is the uncertainty in measurement and estimates, that are in turn needed to understand the effectiveness of policies and show which population groups are most affected. Studies can provide different ways to more accurately estimate the number of people ever infected and to raise awareness towards the sensitivity of widely used indicators. A better understanding about people’s behavior can help to find better ways to tackle and adapt to the new challenges and find adequate policy responses.
