NORC at the University of Chicago has teamed with the University of Chicago Booth School of Management to learn more about the economic, social, and behavioral impacts of COVID-19 and gain a deeper understanding of how the outbreak has impacted policy attitudes. 

Policymakers and the American people need accurate, up-to-date information to respond to this rapidly changing environment. However, delivering quick, high-quality data is an ongoing challenge for researchers. 

NORC’s AmeriSpeak® Panel combines the nimbleness of a panel solution with the scientific rigor of a probability-based sample, solving the challenge of providing accurate and representative information quickly. Additionally, the experienced research team at NORC is working as a thought partner to ensure that the questionnaire design and fielding methodology are optimized to meet this study’s research goals. 

The COVID-19 Longitudinal Survey provides near-real-time data about Americans’ policy expectations, behaviors, and financial and emotional well-being in the face of the COVID-19 outbreak. Although only early results are available at this time, researchers are already gaining valuable insights into how different segments of the population are being impacted by social distancing measures.
