Project Description:
To understand the impact of COVID-19 on our study area, we collect phone survey data (to minimize in-person interactions) from households and enterprises. These phone surveys measure economic, health and behavioral change outcomes for households and enterprises targeted in Egger et al (2019). We also bring in a sample of additional households and enterprises based on a recent census activity to ensure our sample is representative for the entire study area as recently as possible. This census tracked all 70,000 households and 20,000 enterprises in the area, providing an up-to-date representative sample of households and firms. Through household phone surveys, we collect variables on economic, social, and health behaviors and symptoms for each household, as well as indicators for the wider economy. We also collect data on up-to-date health policies and restrictions in the area. Household phone surveys take approximately 30 minutes. To keep the survey brief, some sections of the survey are skipped for a random subset of households. Enterprise phone surveys include information on closures, revenues, profits, and number of employees. Surveys take approximately 15 minutes.
