Abstract

This article aimed to build an index of economic effects by COVID-19 to analyze the potential impact of the pandemic and isolation measures between sectors and regions in Argentina, during the quarter of greater recession in the country, April-June, 2020. Takes into account the sectoral productive structure of the regions, the level of operation of each sector, the regional labor mobility, and the potential for teleworking across sectors, it is shown that the pandemic had an unequal impact between regions and that the sectoral specialization profile is a relevant explanatory factor. Tourism, extractive, and heavy industries profiles have been much more affected than agro-industrial and light manufacturing areas.
