Economic Recovery: Enabling Comparative Research on COVID-19


This Working Group focuses on the economic recovery of businesses and communities from the COVID-19 pandemic. With communities around the world experiencing severe economic impacts, we anticipate a proliferation of efforts to track, assess, and explain local economic recovery. We will develop resources to enable comparable data collection and mutual learning; for example, by proposing and sharing standardized metrics and survey instruments.
