Pandemic covid 19 / SARS-COV-2 – sociological data regarding current situation

Current state poses many questions regarding health and health care and also economic situation and impact of protective measures. Sociological research can provide us with deeper insight into current situation and impact of pandemic. Many data and information will not be known until the very end of the current crisis, however, many relevant data are already available and more will follow in the near future.


Apart from collecting information regarding available data and studies connected to COVID-19, we are also actively participating on research efforts. On behalf of the Sociological Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences, part of the CSDA team has joined international research initiative of Antwerp University International COVID-19 Student Well-being Study, which is focusing on university students; how their student life and well-being has been impacted by COVID-19 outbreak. The research is a collaboration of 27 countries.

We selected some sociological surveys, refering to data and/or studies themselves. The list is work in progress.
