The COVID-19 pandemic deeply impacted the San Francisco economy. This page offers several metrics to help people understand how the city was impacted and track how it is recovering from the effects of the pandemic. To learn more about the City's economic recovery efforts, see the Roadmap to San Francisco's Future.
Data measures help us see how our economy has changed and how the city and our community have been impacted by these changes. We track measures about tourism, office attendance, jobs, and more to measure the state of our economy. We use maps and information on race and ethnicity, age, and gender to understand where changes have focused and whom has been impacted in what ways. This information gives us insight into what economic development strategies we might create to support the economic health of our city, to track the effectiveness of those strategies, and to inform our equitable response.
We are committed to providing accurate and reliable data to the public. The data notes on each dashboard explain data sources and limitations.
