Poverty Lab COVID-19 Household Survey

The Poverty Lab and the Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation at Chicago Booth have embarked on a series of joint research projects to better understand the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on small businesses and households.

Household Panel Survey

A team of researchers at the Poverty Lab and the Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation at the University of Chicago has been administering a longitudinal survey on a representative sample of the U.S. population that aims to collect information about how Americans are reacting to the COVID-19 crisis, how they’re coping with physical distancing measures, and how this unprecedented crisis might be changing their views about the economy, politics, the role of government, and the future of their country.

In partnership with NORC at the University of Chicago, an independent, non-partisan research institution, the survey is being administered to more than 1,400 Americans using a sample drawn from NORC's probability-based AmeriSpeak Panel, which is designed to be representative of the U.S. population.
