„Social, health, and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the epidemiological control measures

Only four months after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, SHARE launched the first of two Corona telephone surveys. The key advantage of the data provided in these surveys is their link to the regular SHARE panel study, allowing a direct comparison of respondents’ health, economic, and social situations immediately before and after the outbreak of the pandemic.

In the new First Results Book, researchers from all over Europe and Israel provide new scientific findings based on this data in the fields of:

  • Quality of health care
  • Health and health behaviours
  • Labour market implications
  • Impact on income and inequality
  • Social and geographical patterns
  • Housing and living arrangements
