Impact of COVID-19 Data Dashboard

Dalberg Advisors

The data from Dalberg Advisors is based on a survey of 47,000 households in India across 15 states. It was collected in multiple rounds between 05 April – 03 June 2020 when the government entitlements were underway to help low-income families navigate the financial impacts of COVID-19.

Our aim for this study was to provide real-time, actionable data to help policymakers make informed decisions during the crisis. To this end, we shared the results directly with over 110 state and central government officials on an ongoing basis across various themes ranging from financial impact on BPL households, access to relief measures including PDS, Jan Dhan, MGNREGS, Social Pensions, PM Kisan, PM Ujjwala, alongside sufficiency of the relief efforts.
