To monitor the welfare impacts of COVID-19 on households, the World Bank and various partners have implemented High-Frequency Phone Surveys (HFPS) in more than 100 countries around the world (see more details here). The COVID-19 Household Monitoring Dashboard has been developed to provide comparable cross-country information on the effects of the crisis on various outcomes.

The Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region has been a pioneer of the global HFPS efforts. This website gathers information on all the rounds of High-Frequency Phone Surveys implemented in LAC and knowledge products based on the data collected. The website will be updated frequently to account for the latest data and analysis.
