Civis Analytics COVID-19 Report | Fielded May 8 through June 15, 2020
To track how consumer opinions and behaviors change, Civis is fielding recurring research. Subscribe to receive updates in your inbox as they become available.
While mandatory lockdowns and coronavirus-related restrictions continue to lift across the country, concern levels remain high (76%) and general trust in federal and state government response to the pandemic appears stable, with little change over the past several weeks. That does not mean, however, that people are not easing back into pre-pandemic routines.
Highlights for this wave of research are below, and additional topline data can be found here.
The 75%+ COVID-19 concern level is apparent in the frequency with which people are leaving for more social and recreational purposes — still only 9% report doing so on a daily basis, effectively flat with data collected in early May.
20% have visited a bar or restaurant within the past week, however — those doing so skew white, age 35+ and higher income.
Survey data was collected weekly between 5/8 and 6/15, 2020 and includes approx. 2,000 responses from U.S. adults age 18+ each week. Results have been weighted to be representative of the U.S. population.
Applied Data Science Lead Jonathan Williams shares his take on the key themes of the data every month. He looks at how opinions and behaviors among certain demographics have shifted as quarantine periods lengthen, case counts increase, and unemployment worsens.
Beginning 6/12, Civis has asked a series of weekly questions about support for Black Lives Matter, and understanding of/attitudes towards police reform. Below you can find combined cross-tabs from the first two weeks of data, as well as new 6/26 data that focuses on actions supporting Black Lives Matter — and what motivated those actions.
