The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has developed data on how U.S. businesses changed their operations and employment since the onset of the novel coronavirus. This information, in combination with data collected by current BLS surveys, will aide in understanding how businesses responded during the pandemic. Other BLS statistics collected and published during the pandemic provide indications of changes in employment, wages, job openings and terminations, employer-provided benefits, and safety and health. By asking employers directly what they experienced, and how they responded to the pandemic, data users will be able to draw meaningful conclusions.
Data for the Business Response Survey to the Coronavirus Pandemic are scheduled to be released in November 2020. You can subscribe to receive updates and additional information about the data release.
Data were collected for a two month period between July and September 2020.
