Survey “Life with Corona” launched: take part now!

The Corona/COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented crisis facing the world. People around the world are adapting their daily lives and fear lock-ins, shortages of food and other essential goods, as well as severe illness and death. At the same time, some people do not appear at all to be worried about getting infected and disregard official advice and policies.

What implications will this Corona pandemic have on the daily lives of people around the world? How will it affect the mental health, consumption and eating habits, social cohesion as well as expectations towards politics and public administration? And how will these factors develop over time as new information about the virus emerges and new measures are implemented by states?

Politics, medicine and academia do not have answers to these new questions. However, scientifically-valid answers to these questions are of critical importance for dealing with the pandemic for maintaining health, nutrition and social peace around the world. Only those measures that are accepted by citizens will be followed.

Life with Corona captures the voices and moods of affected citizens around the world, collecting data to provide answers to these questions. Life with Corona is a charitable citizen science project based on rigorous academic methods.

Your participation in the “Life with Corona” study will provide valuable information for researchers studying the social and economic implications of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The study started on 23 March 2020 and will continue throughout 2020 at least. It is conducted by an international team of researchers and volunteers led by Professor Tilman Brück. It is currently available in German and English.

To take part in the study please follow the link Life with Corona.
