An uneven recovery: Taking the pulse of the Latin America and Caribbean Region following the pandemic
Nov 29, 2021
To continue monitoring how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the welfare of households in the region, the World Bank and UNDP have joined forces in the implementation of a second phase of High-Frequency Phone Surveys (HFPS) in Latin America and the Caribbean. The survey, collected between May and July 2021, takes the socio-economic pulse of households and measures the wellbeing of the region a year and a half into the pandemic.
This note "An Uneven Recovery: Taking the pulse of the Latin American and the Caribbean region following the pandemic" presents the emerging results in the areas of labor markets, income and food security, education, gender, health, and access to digital and banking services.
