The coronavirus pandemic has led to the largest contraction in the UK economy this year in over 300 years. The economic impact will reflect the length of the pandemic as well as the public health restrictions imposed and other voluntary social distancing measures, which has led to a reduction in the demand for goods and services and has adversely impacted the ability of businesses to supply those products. The response to COVID-19 has also had an effect on the ability of National Statistical Institutes (NSIs) to compile estimates of GDP, inflation and the labour market. There have been significant theoretical and practical challenges in compiling these estimates this year, which have been integral in helping policymakers and economists understand the effects of the pandemic so far.
