Take the survey


  • We invite people, all over the world to complete the questionnaire on this site.
  • We want to find out how you are doing, and what effect the COVID-19 crisis has had on you and your family.
  • First, we ask you for some basic facts about you and your household, such as where you live, how old you are, and your living circumstances.
  • We will not ask for your name or address and the responses you choose to provide will be delinked from any identifying information that can be tracked to you.
  • Then we ask some questions about your views about life, and how you’re feeling. There are no right or wrong answers – we just want to know how you’re doing.
  • You can return to this survey as often as you like, to give us an update on how you’re doing.
  • You can track how you’re doing over time and see how that compares to others in your country and around the world

What is this research about?

The main goal of the research project is to gather data to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economic and health outcomes and the overall well-being of individuals and households worldwide. The research will explore how large these impacts are, how they vary across individuals in different countries, by their social and economic circumstances, and over time.

The project is funded by the Nossal Institute and the School of Population and Global Health at the University of Melbourne.
