  • Crowdsourcing: Impacts of COVID-19 on Canadians
    • The crowd-sourcing online questionnaire collects data on the current economic and social situation, as well as on people’s physical and mental health, to effectively assess the needs of communities and implement suitable support measures during and after the pandemic. In order to implement this survey rapidly, the survey is conducted online only. Respondents are also asked if they would like to volunteer to participate in the Canadian Perspectives Survey Series (CPSS).
  • Canadian Perspectives Survey Series 1: Impacts of COVID-19
    • Report and infographic of results for the period between 29 March and 3 April. More than 4,600 people in the 10 provinces responded to this survey between March 29 and April 3. The CPSS involves creating a pool of people who agree to complete about six very short online surveys over a period of one year (about one every two months). The CPSS aims at understanding social issues more rapidly, while reducing the cost of collecting data.
