Timewise part time workers

The question Timewise would like to answer is ‘to what extent have part time workers been disproportionately negatively impacted by covid?’

We will use two-quarter longitudinal Labour Force Survey data to explain the impact of covid on part time workers and those who work in a more flexible manner, compared to full time workers. This data source looks at flows from one quarter to the next. The analysis will be similar in manner to the longitudinal LFS analysis IES undertook in December on the impacts of coronavirus on the labour market. We will benchmark to 2019 quarters to assess the difference between usual seasonal trends and the effect of the pandemic.
