The CovidLife survey was launched on 17th April 2020 in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. In our baseline survey, we asked ~18,000 people a series of questions about how COVID-19 had been affecting them. 

We invited people, over the age of 18, to take part. Our volunteers included over 13,000 members of the general public and over 4,000 Generation Scotland participants. They were asked questions about the impact of the pandemic on their health, wellbeing, social and work life and education. The survey was conducted online, using the a Qualtrics platform.
