COVID-19 USA-Poland Survey
Project OverviewThe purpose of this study is to compare COVID-19 perceptions, experiences, behaviors, well-being, and health care conditions in the USA and Poland. USA and Poland have unique sociocultural and geopolitical circumstances, which have shaped responses to COVID-19 and likely produced variations in people’s experiences and perceptions in these two countries. Data were collected in June and July of 2020 from individuals 18 years and older residing in the two countries using an online survey in English and Polish. Published COVID-19 measures were used. An extra module of the survey targeted health care workers and their experiences and assessment of health systems’ responses to COVID-19. A total of 570 completed surveys were received and are being analyzed. This study will increase our understanding of how people in different countries have fared during the pandemic.
