Technology and COVID-19

A FoWiGS dataset

The COVID-19 pandemic was a sudden and unexpected shock, unprecedented in the breadth and
depth of its reach. As such, it triggered a tremendous wave of transformations in an already
changing environment for labor markets around the world.
We already knew that not all jobs were created equal: some of them are more vulnerable than
others to technological displacement, informality, and poor working conditions. Women, ethnic
minorities, young people, and low-skilled workers are more prone to be employed on these jobs. For
better or worse, COVID-19 has shaken the labor market status quo and created new opportunities
and challenges for workers and policymakers.
Understanding a day in the life of a particular worker in the pandemic world requires to look at new
data: is this employee able to telework and, therefore, remain safe from the risk of infection while
sustaining their job? Has the risk of automation of their job increased due to health factors? Do they
work in close proximity to other people or in environments that are prone to infections?
This open dataset aims at answering these questions and understanding the health and economic
risks facing workers. It combines indicators on the ability to telework, the probability of automation,
the physical proximity and the sanitary risk associated to different job types by country, gender, and
skill-level. Lying at the intersection of technological change and health data, it provides insights on
the new challenges faced by labor markets across the globe.
