Phase 2 of the survey examines the long-term impacts on the experiences and expectations of residents and cross-border workers
Within the framework of the Task Force Research Luxembourg, Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER) and the University of Luxembourg have decided to join their efforts to study the socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 crisis in Luxembourg and in the Greater Region. This project, supported by the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR), began to study in spring 2020 the short-term impacts suffered by individuals and families in the beginning of the lockdown and is now looking at their long-term expectations and concerns.
Similar to the Phase 1 previous survey launched, this large online survey is aimed at all residents in Luxembourg aged 16 and over, whether they are workers, students, retirees, high school students, …because all opinions count and all information is valuable. The survey is also accessible to cross-border workers, who have also been affected by this crisis.
The survey covers health (physical and mental), employment and working patterns, daily activities, mobility, family interactions, etc.
The responses collected will provide a better understanding of the extent of the socio-economic impacts of the pandemic, provide a portrait of the people hardest hit, and thus help to inform the important policy decisions that will still have to be taken in the coming weeks and months.
This study is being conducted on a voluntary and anonymous basis, and is carried out in two phases:
- Phase 1 of the survey was carried out in spring 2020 and focused on first experiences with confinement and de-confinement.
- Phase 2, lasting two months from mid-March, is examining long-term impacts of COVID-19 the lives of those affected.
The questionnaire, translated into French, German and English, takes about 20 minutes to complete. The more numerous and precise the answers, the more reliable the results of the analysis will be.
