The London Intelligence: How coronavirus is impacting and changing London

We’re bringing together the latest data to show how London’s economy and society are being affected by the coronavirus crisis.

The coronavirus pandemic will bear long-term impacts on the capital. The London Intelligence will assess the capital’s ability to recover and compare this to other global cities. And it will look at how London’s pre-existing challenges are developing – from pressure on housing and transport to automation and carbon reduction.

The London Intelligence will provide insights into three core areas:

Economic insights

Research and analysis of timely economic datasets, in association with the Policy Institute and the Centre for Urban Science and Progress, at King’s College London.

We will look at how the crisis affects economic activity levels, including workforce, consumption habits, and any sector variations. This analysis will be tested with London business groups to assess and understand the direct impact on specific sectors.

Society insights

Research and analysis of timely societal data sets, including climate change, public services, migration and education.

Snapshots of Londoners

A snapshot of Londoners perceptions and behaviours, drawing on quarterly poll of 2,000 Londoners, in association with Savanta. This will explore Londoners’ life satisfaction, attitudes to their neighbourhoods and experiences of public services, social interactions and activities, spending and leisure habits.
