The project will quantify the socio-economic patterning of Long COVID, as well as investigate on the impact of Long COVID on work ability, healthcare, and long-term care costs, and analyse the demographic and socio-economic determinants associated with the vaccination.

What are the project objectives?

As a first project objective, we will quantify the socio-economic patterning of Long COVID and will address the following questions:

What is the Long COVID prevalence along socio-economic gradients in asymptomatic, mild and moderate COVID-19 patients?Can we identify socio-economic profiles of vulnerable persons to offer them treatment options as soon as they are available?Which demographic and socio-economic factors are associated with vaccination willingness and beliefs towards vaccination ?

As a second project objective, we will investigate the impact of Long COVID on work ability, healthcare, and long-term care costs and will address the following questions:

What are the immediate economic and healthcare costs associated with Long COVID, with a focus on labour market and healthcare costs?What are the economic consequences for Long COVID patients, with focus on foregone working time and possibly earnings as well as healthcare-related costs?

As a third objective, we will analyse the demographic and socio-economic determinants associated with the vaccination:

Which demographic and socio-economic factors are associated with vaccination willingness and beliefs towards vaccination?

What population do we target?

Population-representative sample of individuals with and without confirmed COVID-19 infection (asymptomatic, mild, moderate, and possibly severe)

The working population in Luxembourg, based on IGSS data.
