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.
