Covid-19 has had a major, ongoing economic impact across the globe; but that impact is not uniform across different industries. While some economic sectors have seen business rapidly decline, others have – to date – been more stable. Some have even seen an increase in demand.

This chart aims to give a broad overview of which sectors are suffering the most since the WHO declared Covid-19 a pandemic. It uses exclusive dynamic intelligence provided by GlobalData to track the number of jobs open for applications, across the world, across 19 economic sectors. The summary chart shows the six which have seen the biggest percentage drop in these “active” jobs.
