Demographers have a key role to play in terms of charting the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially with reference to different population age groups. They also have a key role in holding to account agencies responsible for publishing appropriate data to inform decision-making and policy. In LMICs, demographers confront particular challenges of limited data coverage and the need to produce meaningful analysis as quickly as possible.
This webinar will explore the state of available data and related analysis for specific low and middle-income countries that have been especially affected by the pandemic.
