As at March 2021, women's employment has still not recovered to pre-pandemic levels, while men's have made a full recovery, a survey shows.

The fifth and final National Income Dynamics Study - Coronavirus Rapid Mobile Survey (NIDS-CRAM) was released during a virtual event on Thursday; it comprises 16 research papers. The data reflect the impact of Covid-19 on the economy and society. 

The data for the fifth survey were collected between 6 April and 11 May - ahead of the peak of the third wave - said Professor Nic Spaull, co-principal investigator of NIDS-CRAM.
