The aim of this project is to document, as detailed as possible, using available administrative records, how the burden of unemployment was distributed across various groups during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Such information will give an idea of whether, and to what extent, the pandemic is likely to increase existing inequalities, but also ease any forecasts of the persistence of unemployment.
