The COVID-19 Pandemic caused a change in the working patterns experienced by many Scottish people. This report describes the impact on income, savings and consumption induced by the pandemic and the restrictions it imposed.
The sample of older people (aged <50) was drawn from two Scottish longitudinal studies - Healthy Ageing in Scotland (HAGIS) and Generation Scotland. A predefined panel of Scottish respondents
(aged <50) was additionally invited to participate. Data were collected between October 2021 – January 2022 using electronic and postal self-complete interviews and telephone-assisted personal
interviews (TAPI). From a target sample of 15,674 older people, 3373 (41% men, 59% women) participants completed the survey.
