FAREWELL to C19 (FAmily REsponse and WELL-Being impact of Covid-19

Lockdowns and the economic crisis induced by Covid-19 are imposing unprecedented constraints on families in terms of freedom of choice, consumption opportunities, time use, and social interaction. While working from home has become the norm, it also implies a dramatic increase in inequality among families, since people most likely to be working from home were already better off. The FAREWELL to C19 project aims to analyse how these effects concur with individual traits (such as age, gender, economic status, and resilience under uncomfortable circumstances) to shape people's preferences, eco...

Modeling the macroeconomic and distributional effects of Covid-19 and restarting scenarios (MODVid)

MODVid is a set of four complementary and interdependent work packages involving 6 PI's and about 20 partners from Unilu, STATEC, LISER and international institutions. Two WP's aim to inform public decisions during the crisis. They provide estimates of the macroeconomic, distributional, and epidemiological effects of the crisis and of restarting scenarios in Luxembourg. These outputs will be delivered within one to two months. Other WP's aim to inform public decisions in the aftermath of the crisis. They address medium-term effects on the industry and occupational structure of the labor for...

MODVid -- Modeling the macroeconomic and distributional eects of Covid-19 and restarting scenarios

MODVid is a package of four complementary and interdependent projects aimed to inform public decisions fastly. The goal is to use better modeling tools to estimate consistent macroeconomic and distributional effects of the crisis and of restarting scenarios. We propose to use macroeconomic and microsimulation models available at STATEC or LISER (assuming a return to normalcy after the crisis) as well as to develop a model highlighting the risk of a systemic collapse of financial markets (no return to normalcy). In the assessment of the restarting strategy, a particular attention is devoted ...

Occupational Sorting of Employees after the Lockdown

In this project we ask the following research question: What is the impact of COVID-19 lockdown on workers' sectoral and occupational allocation, wage inequality and unemployment across European regions and countries? Our goal is to quantify the labor market implications of partial annihilation of selected sectors of economic activity. By simulating scenarios of different degree of severity, we compute changes in workers' assignment to jobs, unemployment measures, and final production across sectors of regional and national economies. Our study is targeted at identifying those segments of l...

Middle generation and middle class before the post-covid19 recession, Income, wealth and health i...

Young-mid-aged adults (YMAA) - typically in the first decades of their entry in the labour market - make strategic choices in a context of uncertainty, such as home ownership, debt and saving balance, and wealth strategies, which have strong impacts in the long run. Before covid19, apart from the 2008 financial crisis, relative stability, easier access to credit, and the rapid growth of the housing index (with different magnitudes across countries) favored home ownership; early investment (through debt) favored capital gains. The later the decision to buy, the smaller the surface a househol...

Distributional impact of the COVID-19 Crisis

The project aims to assess the costs and distributional implications of the COVID-19 outbreak in Luxembourg. It will identify those most likely to suffer from income losses, leading to more effective/efficient targeting of income support measures and improved cost estimates of COVID-19. The lack of timely available data constrains the estimation of the scale and direction of recent changes in the income distribution, which in turn constrain policymakers seeking to monitor such developments. There are huge uncertainties about the budgetary costs and distributional impacts of the outbreak....
