The effect of COVID19 on migration and livelihood: the case of Uganda

Researchers are leveraging a recent community policing RCT to conduct phone surveys and examine whether positive interactions with police officers increase individuals’ willingness to comply with policies banning social gatherings and limiting transportation. Moving beyond health behavior, they also include a battery of questions on migration and money transfers (remittances) to measure the impact of the coronavirus on various forms of economic activity on the rural poor.
