Wave 2 - 2022: "Not There Yet: Slow Recovery And Many Left Behind As Latin America And The Caribbean Navigates The Ripples Of The Pandemic"

(written jointly with The World Bank)

 

To continue monitoring how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the welfare of households in the region, the World Bank and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) joined forces in 2021 to implement a second phase of High-Frequency Phone Surveys (HFPS) in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). A first wave was collected between May and July 2021, and a second between October 2021 and January 2022.

This last wave takes the socio-economic pulse of households and measures the region's well-being almost two years into the pandemic.

This note presents the emerging results in the areas of labor markets, income, food security, coping mechanisms, education, health, and gender.
