COVID-19 Monitor: a rolling public opinion study on the dynamics of the pandemic
This project will undertake a year-long rolling study of public opinion across eight countries—Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany and Brazil. It will measure the health, social, and economic impacts of COVID-19 throughout the duration of the pandemic and during its immediate aftermath. The study will be comprised of multiple survey waves in each country, mostly drawn from Vox Pop Labs’ proprietary online respondent panel, which is comprised of several million people worldwide. The proposed research team will be responsible for continuously adapting the survey design to reflect the changing dynamics around the pandemic, for analyzing the incoming data from the surveys, and for promptly and continuously engaging in knowledge mobilization via means such as government briefings, media contributions, and other public information resources.
