Homebase is a free scheduling and time tracking tool used by 100,000+ local businesses and their hourly employees. Homebase’s customers in the US primarily consist of restaurant, food & beverage, retail and services and are largely individual owned/operator managed businesses.

This dataset is based on Homebase data covering 60,000 businesses and 1 million hourly employees active in these metropolitan areas in January 2020.

All the rates compare that day vs. the median for that day of the week for the period Jan 4, 2020 – Jan 31, 2020. In other words, they show the extent to which COVID-19 has impacted Main St. as compared to pre-COVID levels.
