CoViD-19 Impact Lab was started in mid-March 2020 by a group of economists at Bonn who are passionate about writing robust code to analyse interesting economic questions. Our group now consists of students and more senior researchers from several institutions like the University of Mannheim, the University of Lausanne, Tilburg University, and the Institute of Labor Economics (IZA).

Here is a picture from a typical lab meeting:

We distribute the workload across several teams. Unless otherwise noted, contributors are affiliated with the Economics Department at the University of Bonn, whether as students or as faculty.
