COVID-19: Impact on firms

COVID-19 has affected all parts of the world. The breadth and depth of the effects of the outbreak on the world population and its productive capacity remain uncertain. However, it is clear that many government measures to curtail contagion will have a direct impact on the private sector—including the hundreds of millions who derive their living from its activity. As part of the overall response of the Development Economics Vice Presidency (DEC) of the World Bank, the Enterprise Analysis Unit has been developing different approaches to measure the virus’s impact on the private sector.

The Indicators presented here provide a snapshot of the impact of COVID-19 on the private sector based on the Follow-up Surveys. All datasets are available on the data portal
