The OSCE Academy is international partner of the Life with Corona project. Life with Corona is a global citizen science research project initiated by researchers from ISDC, UNU-WIDER, IGZ, and IDS to collect data on the social and economic impacts of COVID-19.
The survey will help researchers to understand and measure the social and economic consequences of the global crisis we are living through. This will provide the much-needed evidence that policy makers seek in order to develop informed responses.
On 1 October 2020, the second round of the Life with Corona global survey is being launched, alongside a report covering key findings from six months of data collection including:
• Young adults actively perform many behaviours to counter the pandemic.
• Stress in families during the pandemic falls disproportionately on women.
• Older people worry less during the pandemic, despite being at greater health risk.
• Support for government’s countermeasures drops after the first peak of COVID-related deaths in a country.
• Overall, people think a vaccine should be made available globally. Only in the USA do more people think their county should have special access to it.
• Younger people are more willing to pay to stop the spread of the disease than older people.
These findings come from analysis of nearly 12,000 responses from more than 130 countries.
