COVID-19 EU PolicyWatch - Portugal

Eurofound's COVID-19 EU PolicyWatch collates information on the responses of government and social partners to the crisis, as well as gathering examples of company practices aimed at mitigating the social and economic impacts.
Eurofound has identified 31 measures in Portugal in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most cases fall into the category Income protection beyond short-time work with 6 cases (19%). The data collection to date started in March 2020, with the next main update scheduled for July 2020.

The impact of COVID-19 for people living and working in Europe

The impact of COVID-19 for people living and working in Europe: How can policymakers respond?

The first findings from Eurofound’s survey Living, working and COVID-19 launched on 9 April paint a stark picture, with people across the EU experiencing a deterioration in their economic situation and concerns for their financial future. EU citizens are generally reporting a decrease in their well-being but young people in particular are reporting much lower levels of mental well-being and higher levels of loneliness than other age groups.

Living, working and COVID-19: First Eurofound findings

The aim of the survey is to investigate the impact on well-being, work and telework and on the financial situation of people living in Europe.
It includes a range of questions relevant to people across various age groups and life situations.
Most of the questions are based on Eurofound’s European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS) and European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS), while other questions are new or were adapted from other sources, such as the EU Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC).
