PsyCorona Dataset


PsyCorona is an ad hoc, multinational collaborative study in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Broadly speaking, we study the psychological factors that predict how people respond to the coronavirus and to the associated public health measures. The ultimate goal is to provide actionable knowledge that can serve to enhance pandemic response. To achieve this goal, PsyCorona was designed with three distinct phases: (1) a cross-sectional survey, (2) follow-up surveys, and (3) integrative data science.
