In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, IPA launched the Research for Effective COVID-19 Responses (RECOVR) initiative to track how the pandemic and associated lockdowns have affected economic activity of business owners, workers, and farmers in low- and middle-income countries. The survey responses have been harmonised in line with the IGC-IPA survey module. The harmonised survey for Zambia contains information on the impact on business activity, workers’ wages and hours, and food security for 1,274 individuals from the 10 provinces.
