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 presents the emerging results in the areas of labor markets, income and food security, education, gender, health, and access to digital and banking services.
