The Socio-Economic Impact (SEI) project focuses on data collection to support research on the short- and medium-term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and related (de)confinement measures in Luxembourg on individuals and their households in terms of work and living conditions, daily activities and mobility, and (not directly COVID-19 related) health and health behaviours. To that purpose, a large-scale survey has been developed which forms the basis for monitoring the impact of the outbreak and associated policy measures on (a) work and living conditions, (b) daily activities and mobility, (c) time use and household interactions and (d) health and health behaviours. This report descibes the design and implementation of the first wave of the survey and the descriptive results per thematic module. Multivariate analyses of the data of the first wave will be put central in various thematic papers which will be published this yar and the years thereafter.
