The impact of COVID-19 on relative changes in aggregated mobility using mobile-phone data

by   Georg Heiler, et al.

Evaluating relative changes leads to additional insights which would remain hidden when only evaluating absolute changes. We analyze a dataset describing mobility of mobile phones in Austria before, during COVID-19 lock-down measures until recent. By applying compositional data analysis we show that formerly hidden information becomes available: we see that the elderly population groups increase relative mobility and that the younger groups especially on weekends also do not decrease their mobility as much as the others.
