Tracing the societal effects of COVID-19

Contact tracing using apps like TraceCORONA is only one part in the puzzle of encountering a disease like COVID-19. It is also important that authorities and policymakers receive timely and representative information about the societal impacts of COVID-19 and its perceptionst in the general population.

A very interesting project in this regard is the Covid19 Impact Survey conducted by our colleagues from Spain. It consists of an on-line survey comprising 25 concise and easy-to-answer questions that can help the researchers to obtain important information about how the disease impacts the life of people in different countries and how people perceive it.

The anonymous survey developed by the Government of Valencia (spanish version) and ELLIS Alicante (non-spanish versions) is available in 12 different languages and can be found here. The privacy policy related to the survey can be found here.

The researchers have also made available a research report related to initial results of the survey as well as a highly interesting overview of response statistics.
