The COVID-19 pandemic and policy responses, including stay-at-home orders and expanded use of telework, disrupted data collection for major HHS data systems. This brief identifies the impact of the pandemic on 29 HHS statistical surveys and administrative data systems widely used by policymakers and the public. Changes in methodology to accommodate the pandemic and the addition of new content related to COVID-19 were identified through a review of information on data system websites and informal interviews with data system leads. Recommendations for data users are provided to adapt to pandemic-related changes in available data, including the use of alternative data sources, new types of data collection, and methodological approaches to adjust data.
