Survey shows expectations about economic recovery after pandemic

Posted by Marina
A survey released this Friday (12) by the Brazilian Federation of Banks (Febraban) points out that almost half (49%) of the interviewees believe that their finances will return to the level they had before the covid-19 pandemic in up to a year. Of these, 21% bet that the resumption may take place even faster, in up to six months.

This is the Febraban Observatory, a monthly study that maps the population's view of the issues that impact Brazil. In this research, Febraban seeks to identify how people have overcome fears and uncertainties in the resumption of economic activities in the country due to the pandemic of the new coronavirus.

According to the survey, 37% of respondents expect to decrease their travel - which may indicate fear of contamination by covid-19. Still fearing the virus, a percentage of 27% of ears want to increase work in the home office mode and 28% plan to use delivery services more. The survey also found that 45% of respondents say they will devote more time to family and children and 30% intend to increase purchases made via e-commerce.

The Observatory points out optimism among the Brazilian banking population regarding the prospect of individual and family financial recovery. There is, for example, an intention to maintain or increase the frequency to supermarkets in 78% of those surveyed. Other businesses also have high intentions to continue or increase their frequency, such as beauty salons (66%), street shops (55%), bars and restaurants (47%) and shopping malls (47%).

Held by the Institute of Social, Political and Economic Research (Ipespe), the first edition of the new Febraban Observatory heard a sample of one thousand people representing the adult population in banking, from all regions of the country, between the 1st and 3rd of June.
