Study: Natural hazards compound Covid-19 impacts disproportionately on businesses run by minorities, women and vets

Study: Natural hazards compound Covid-19 impacts disproportionately on businesses run by minorities, women and vets

Editor’s note: This story was adapted from the news release issued by NIST

By many measures, 2020 — a year dominated by an emerging pandemic and overrun with natural disasters — was bad for business. A multitude of variables affected the ability of businesses to adapt, but according to new research, socio-economic vulnerabilities intensified impacts on small businesses.

A study by researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) revealed that businesses run by minorities, women and veterans, were dealt a much worse hand by the pandemic than other businesses. What’s more, the team saw that these businesses reported harsher downturns from COVID-19 alone than even other small businesses that were struck by natural disasters on top of COVID-19.
