The COVID-19 pandemic triggered major changes in the patterns of human population movement across the world. Non-pharmaceutical interventions to contain the spread of COVID-19 contributed to sharp declines in population movements. However, these interventions have differentiated impacts across population socioeconomic groups. Less advantage populations continued to display relatively high levels of commuting and increased the relative exposure to COVID-19, while commuting among affluent households recorded a reduction reflecting the capacity of their jobs to be done remotely. However, most of the existing evidence has drawn on data from the Global North and focuses on the immediate impacts of the pandemic. Suitable data have represented a major limitation to monitor change in mobility patterns in countries in the Global South, including Latin American countries, and the evolution of human mobility patterns beyond 2020. Drawing on aggregate anonymised mobile phone location data from MetaFacebook users, we will present our work which aims to address these research gaps. Particularly we analysed the extent and persistence of changes in the levels (or intensity) and spatial patterns of human mobility in urban areas of Argentina, Chile and Mexico over a 26-month period from March 2020 to May 2022. We show evidence of the heterogeneous nature of the evolution of human mobility patterns after COVID-19 across socioeconomic groups and regions with different levels of urbanisation.
