Data are from Layoffs.fyi (accessed January 21, 2021), an online database tracking startup layoffs since the COVID-19 pandemic began, created by Roger Lee. Data are “compiled primarily from public report.” The number of employees affected is an estimate because some companies did not publicly disclose that information (or it was not available on Layoffs.fyi). Analysis includes both public and private companies. Other includes Aerospace, Construction, Data, Education, Energy, Food, Healthcare, HR, Infrastructure, Legal, Logistics, Marketing, Media, Other, Product, Security, and Support.
