No wp-2023-4, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: This paper aims to assess the extent to which top earners in Ecuador were affected by the COVID-19 crisis compared to other segments of the population. Our analysis uses administrative data for individuals affiliated to social security between January 2019 and December 2021. We identify the top 10, 1, and 0.1 per cent of earners in 2019 and analyse changes in their monthly earnings during the pandemic compared to those of the rest of the registered workforce.
