Did the Covid-19 pandemic create poverty in France?


The French Statistical Institute estimates that the monetary poverty rate was stable between 2019 and 2020, while several scientific and associative contributions note significant socioeconomic difficulties among some groups during the Covid­19 pandemic. Using a secondary analysis of nine quantitative and qualitative surveys collected by the National Council for Policies to Combat Poverty and Social Exclusion (CNLE) in 2021, we show that several social groups were exposed to precariousness of varying format, chronology and mechanisms. We develop implications for poverty measures, welfare inequalities, non­governmental solidarities and temporalities of poverty policies.
