Two new data briefs in NERCRD's COVID-19 Issues Briefs series examine the pandemic's effects on Northeast economic activity. The first uses Gross Domestic Product data to summarize the impact of COVID-19 on the economies of the Northeast U.S., and sets the stage for subsequent briefs that will examine impacts in key industries and sectors. One sector-specific brief, focusing on the tourism and recreation economies in the region, also was released this week.

The briefs and data tables are available as follows:

Impacts of COVID-19 on Northeast Economic Activity
by Jason Entsminger, Luyi Han, and Stephan J. Goetz. NERCRD COVID-19 Data Brief 22-01.

Impacts of COVID-19 on Northeast Tourism and Recreation Economies
by Jason Entsminger, Luyi Han, and Stephan J. Goetz. NERCRD COVID-19 Data Brief 22-02.

The briefs in this series are designed to provide information quickly or to stimulate discussion. Access all 14 of the briefs published thus far here
