Data-set of the paper Disentangling Covid-19, Economic Mobility, and Containment Policy Shocks for replication purpose of the Data Editor of AEJMacro. 

Detailed information on the data-set is in the readme file in the public repository  openicpsr-175241 (under review).

We study the dynamic interaction between Covid-19, economic mobility, and containment policy. We use Bayesian panel structural vector autoregressions with daily data for 44 countries, identified through traditional and narrative sign restrictions. We find that incidence shocks and containment shocks have large and persistent effects on mobility, morbidity, and mortality that last for 1-2 months. These shocks are the main drivers of the pandemic, explaining between 20-60% of the average and historical variability in mobility, cases, and deaths worldwide. The policy tradeoff associated to non-pharmaceutical interventions is 1pp less economic mobility per day for 8% fewer deaths after three months.

It contains dailiy data for (in sheets) Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and United States.
