Social and Economic Impacts of COVID-19 on Canadians

Kristyn Frank, Statistics Canada

Throughout the pandemic, I have published several short research articles that have addressed the social and economic impacts of COVID-19 on Canadians. Drawing from various Statistics Canada data sources, including crowdsourced and web panel surveys, I collaborated with several colleagues to produce timely information about various topics related to the pandemic. Topics included school closures and the online preparedness of children, with a focus on differences by household income, social support for seniors, the economic impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable groups, and Canadians’ attitudes toward COVID-19 testing and vaccinations.
