University of Pittsburgh Center for Family Support Community Survey COVID-19

Community Survey: Issues Related to COVID-19
From The University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Family Support

The University of Pittsburgh Center for Family Support is doing research that involves a community survey about issues related to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. During this difficult time, community input is more important than ever. Your responses will inform professionals and policymakers who are designing programs and interventions to help people cope with this serious public health crisis. Please take a few minutes to share your experiences about how you are personally being impacted and coping with COVID-19. The survey covers COVID-19 impacts on employment, financial well-being, social interactions, health behaviors, physical health, mental health, and if you or anyone in your household has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or are experiencing related symptoms.

If you are providing unpaid care to a loved one because of an illness, disability, or functional problem, you will also be asked detailed questions about how COVID-19 has affected your caregiving duties and ability to provide quality care. These answers will also be extremely helpful in designing programs to help caregivers during this difficult time.

You are not asked any identifying information, your participation is voluntary, and the survey will take about 20 minutes. You can stop taking the survey at any time. De-identified survey data will be kept strictly confidential, with only limited project staff having access to the data in password-protected folders. Your research data may be shared with investigators conducting other research; however, this information will be shared in a de-identified manner.

If you have any questions or concerns about this study, please contact principal investigator Scott Beach, PhD.
