The effect of the pandemic are expected to differ both by geography and by type of household, with preexisting vulnerabilities to food security likely to be magnified. Nigeria has significant longstanding geographical variation in poverty and food insecurity – more than 75 percent of poor Nigerians live in the north of the country – and the pandemic is likely to disproportionately exacerbate food insecurity in those already. Impacts are most severe for poorer households in both rural and urban areas As the spread of the pandemic initiates in urban areas, government responses, will likely be most intense in urban areas and may affect urban residents more directly than including mobility restrictions and lock downs . In this paper, we use the first round of the phone survey (the only available at the time of writing), which was administered in April-May 2020. The LSMS-ISA phone surveys are planned to be monthly surveys and hence are high-frequency surveys. These high-frequency phone surveys covered topics including (1) knowledge regarding the spread of COVID-19;(2) prices and access to food and non-food necessities; (3) employment and income losses;(4) food insecurity; and (5) subjective wellbeing. We are more interested in those outcomes,which can be observed in the face-to-face (pre-COVID-19) and phone (post-COVID-19) surveys. Since both the pre-and post-COVID-19 LSMS-ISA data contain important information on households' participation in economic activities, types of employment,income, and food insecurity experience, we can examine the patterns of food insecurity and labor allocation along multiple periods.
