Women and the Pandemic

In order to understand the consequences of COVID-19, the subsequent confinement measures on individuals’ social, financial and health outcomes, and to track people’s experiences during the pandemic, the University of Luxembourg launched a longitudinal survey: The COME-HERE (COVID-19, MEntal HEalth, Resilience and Self-regulation) panel survey. The COME-HERE survey covers five European Union countries, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden. The COME-HERE-2 survey covers Luxembourg and the Greater Region.

We present descriptive evidence that highlights gender differences observed in mental health and time allocation during the COVID-19 outbreak.
