COVID-19 Research Question Bank

Lauren Clay, PhD, MPH, a disaster scientist from D'Youville College and NYU, has created a repository of survey questions about the impacts of the coronavirus epidemic and the associated economic shut-down on vulnerable populations. Use this repository to find questions to include in your upcoming study, or if you have already developed questions, add them to the repository so that others can use them. The more we use similar questions, the more data from different studies can be compared and aggregated for a more complete picture of impacts.

Submit your data collection instruments on COVID-19 impacts here.
