Track the Recovery

How has COVID-19 affected our economy and what policies will foster a recovery for all Americans? Government surveys of households and businesses show that COVID-19 reduced GDP and increased unemployment sharply. These sources, while critical for measuring the scope of the crisis, are more limited in their capacity to inform policy decisions. In particular, national surveys are neither frequent nor large enough to reveal how the crisis has affected specific areas or subgroups. In response to this challenge, we created the Opportunity Insights Economic Tracker, a freely available interactive website that measures economic activity at a granular level in real time. The tracker is built using anonymized data from several private companies, such as credit card processors and payroll firms. From this data, we construct statistics on consumer spending, employment rates, and other indicators by county, industry, and (pre-crisis) income level. These new statistics allow us to study how COVID-19 has affected the economy with unprecedented precision.
