    COVID Behaviors Dashboard: Updated Data Show Omicron Trends

    Global Omicron cases have exploded since the COVID-19 variant was first reported to the World Health Organization on November 24. The most recent data from the COVID Behaviors Dashboard reflects that trend: the highest percentage of respondents in multiple countries are reporting positive test results since the dashboard went live in May of 2021.

    • Reported positivity rates have jumped at least 10 percentage points in South Africa, Mozambique, Puerto Rico, and many other countries in the past month.
    • In the November 16-30 data collection period for South Africa, 7% of tests were positive. In the most recent December period, that number rose to 37%, more than a four-fold increase.

    Other insights from the latest data collection period (Dec 16-31):

    • 20% of unvaccinated health workers in Japan are now reporting that they will definitely get vaccinated, up from only 3% in early December
    • 90% of South African respondents reported that they have worn a mask all or most of the time, but only 70% believe that all or most other people are wearing masks
    • Respondents in Nigeria have consistently reported a lack of vaccine appointments as the top barrier to vaccination (32% indicating)

      COVID Behaviors Dashboard

      The COVID Behaviors Dashboard visualizes data from the COVID-19 Trends and Impact Survey (CTIS), launched by Facebook with the Delphi Group at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Maryland Social Data Science Center. Insights and analyses on how to use the data were written by researchers and social and behavior change communication experts at CCP in collaboration with WHO’s Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network. This site is intended to be used by policy makers, health officials and practitioners at national and subnational levels to better understand the behavioral drivers behind vaccine uptake, masking and physical distancing among other behaviors that affect the spread of COVID-19.

      Data from this ongoing survey is collected daily and the dashboard is updated every two weeks.

            International COVID-19 Awareness and Responses Evaluation Study

            Understanding people’s concerns about COVID-19, their perceptions, beliefs, and attitudes about public health policies, and how they impact what people are (and are not) willing to do will be important for informing policy strategy and how they are communicated, to ensure the best health and economic outcomes.

            The iCARE Study will capture key data on people’s awareness, attitudes, and behaviors as they relate to the COVID-19 policies, as well as the impacts that COVID-19 is having on people’s physical and mental health, financial situation, and quality of life.

            Data from approximately 250,000 people around the world will be analyzed to understand what government policies are (and are not) influencing behavior and outcomes, and in whom these policies are most or least effective. This data can be used to inform governments on the efficacy of policy measures on both people’s behavior, and on key health and quality of life outcomes.
