Unmasking COVID-19’s economic impact: A data-driven analysis of the COVID-19 lockdowns - NZIER working paper 2023-01

April 6, 2023

COVID-19 has been one of the most significant disruptions to the global economy since the Global Financial Crisis and has changed how we operate. Some trends have returned to normal, but others have permanently changed.

This working paper explores how COVID-19 response measures have impacted New Zealand's economic behaviours. This is achieved by using various public data sources and data held by NZIER.

A Shiny dashboard accompanies this working paper. This dashboard provides interactive datasets at the national and regional levels to analyse the economic impact of COVID-19.
