How has COVID-19 affected the mobility of Swedes?
The paper analyses the spacial mobility of Swedish phone users in late March 2020 as compared to January 2020 in a Difference-in-differences setting. The analysis reveals significant increases in the fraction of phone users who stay home, decreases in movement in industrial and commercial areas and declines in distances travelled. A contribution of the paper is to show that behavioural changes do not differ across areas based on socioeconomic and other demographic characteristics of the residents.
