The dataset contains harmonized indicators created from high-frequency phone surveys collected by the World Bank and partners. The surveys capture the socioeconomic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on households and individuals from all developing regions. Data are available for over 90 indicators in 14 topic areas, including education, food security, income, safety nets, and others. For more information, please refer to our Technical Note and Data Dictionary.
Unit of Measure
The data is aggregated by Urban/Rural/National and Industry Sector
This harmonized dataset is an ongoing collation and harmonization of COVID-19 high-frequency phone survey (HFPS) data. Harmonization involves redefining indicators and categories so that they are comparable across countries. As a result, even if the names and definitions of indicators appear similar, numbers in this global database might differ slightly from those of each country's publications or dashboard. If you see large discrepancies or other issues, please reach out.

The overall INFORM risk index identifies countries at risk from humanitarian crises and disasters that could overwhelm national response capacity. It is made up of three dimensions - hazards and exposure, vulnerability and lack of coping capacity.
The INFORM initiative began in 2012 as a convergence of interests of UN agencies, donors, NGOs and research institutions to establish a common evidence-base for global humanitarian risk analysis.
INFORM identifies the countries at a high risk of humanitarian crisis that are more likely to require international assistance. The INFORM model is based on risk concepts published in scientific literature and envisages three dimensions of risk: Hazards & Exposure, Vulnerability and Lack of Coping Capacity. The INFORM model is split into different levels to provide a quick overview of the underlying factors leading to humanitarian risk.
The INFORM index supports a proactive crisis management framework. It will be helpful for an objective allocation of resources for disaster management as well as for coordinated actions focused on anticipating, mitigating, and preparing for humanitarian emergencies.
