The UN’s Committee for the Coordination of Statistical Activities (CCSA) issued a new report on 1 September 2020 to meet the urgent need of timely and reliable data to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis and to build back better. Volume II of the series “How COVID-19 is changing the world: a statistical perspective” uses the latest available data to map the economic, social, regional and statistical dimensions of our changing world. Compiled and edited by UNICEF and UN DESA’s Statistics and Population Divisions, the report’s second volume updates and expands on the various global, regional and thematic trends identified in the first volume, which was released in May 2020.
