COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives dramatically and has sparked many questions about the health, social and economic effects on our nations.

Data in the UK Data Service collection can be used to begin to understand these questions and to give context for the current inequalities being experienced due to the COVID-19 lockdown. Data have been collected and are made available on topics such as finance, employment, education, ageing, food, crime, the environment, attitudes and much more. In this rapidly changing landscape, the data will continue to adapt. It is expected that many studies will begin to include questions specific to COVID-19, and when ready much of this data will be made available through the UK Data Service.
