This page lists survey instruments that are being developed by IPA and others to learn more about responses to and effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to make questionnaires available to a wide audience to allow researchers to harmonize language, item format, response options, and other features in order for make data more comparable across studies. To support this effort, IPA encourages research teams to use the RECOVR survey and the COVID-19 Economic Impact Survey instruments, listed directly below.
This repository is also meant to provide a starting point for those who are new to these topics or survey modes (phone, SMS, web, etc.). We are seeking to include not just reader-friendly documents with the survey questions, but also coded forms and supporting documents such as field training manuals and protocols, as well as technical reports.
This is not an exhaustive list, but topics can include public health response, access to health resources, norms and attitudes related to COVID-19, economic impact of containment policies, or distance learning. The repository may be expanded in the future to be a general questionnaire repository and individual item bank on any topic or survey mode. If you would like to submit a COVID-19-related questionnaire that is for research in the public good (not for commercial purposes), please fill out this Google Form or contact IPA's Global Data & Research Support (GRDS) team. Comments and suggestions about this repository can be sent to that same address.
IPA is very grateful to the researchers who have contributed their surveys and to our supporting and contributing partners.
