Analysis of National Data on Infection and Mortality
The main objective was to carry out complementary statistical analyses of available data sources to improve our understanding of the role of occupation in the risk of infection and mortality. We have harmonised data and model decisions to help with comparisons. Analyses have been updated periodically to reflect changes in the dominant variant, vaccination status and use of non-pharmaceutical interventions. The analyses were initiated in April 2021 and will be completed by December 2022.
IOM are working on the analyses in collaboration with University of Manchester, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and Office for National Statistics.
