Abstract of the paper : Sectoral effects of social distancing
The health crisis caused by the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus has led many states to take drastic measures of social distancing. By reducing the amount of work, these measures in turn lead to a drop in activity which is difficult to quantify without taking into account the overlapping of sectors. Starting from a standard model of production networks, we analyze the sectoral effects of the shock in the case of France. It is estimated that six weeks of social distancing brings GDP down by 5.6%. Apart from the sectors directly concerned by social distancing measures, those whose added value decreases the most are the upstream sectors, that is to say those furthest from final demand. We estimate the effect of progressive phasing out of social distancing by sector, age, and region.
