This paper reports on a study evaluating the differential impacts of the coronavirus pandemic in Benin and assessing the measures and policies implemented by the Beninese government to fight against COVID-19. The study seeks to analyse how the different policies responded to differently affected socioeconomic groups, sectors, and regions within Benin societies. Ordinal logistic regression has been used to measure the effects of COVID-19 on different socioeconomic groups; in particular, how COVID-19 has affected income, activity levels, and employment.
This study also focused on control and mitigation measures introduced by the Beninese government and its technical and financial partners. Among other things, the study made it possible to list some accompanying policies as a priority set out by these socioeconomic groups to mitigate the harmful effects of COVID-19.
