Covid-19 and financial hardship in London
Greater London Authority
15 October 2021
At the end of 2020 the GLA commissioned the University of Essex to analyse the impact on Londoners of the Covid-19 crisis, of the emergency policies put in place since March 2020 and of some counterfactual policy options, including the continuation of the £20 weekly uplift in Universal Credit and Working Tax Credit.
The researchers used UKMOD, the UK tax-benefit microsimulation model, to conduct their analysis.
