Data Set Description

WageIndicator Survey of Living and Working in Coronavirus Times 2020 Logo

WageIndicator is interviewing people around the world to discover what makes the Coronavirus lockdown easier (or tougher), and what is the COVID-19 effect on our jobs, lives and mood.

WageIndicator shows coronavirus-induced changes in living and working conditions in over 110 countries on the basis of answers on the following questions among others in the Corona survey:

Is your work affected by the corona crisis?
Are precautionary measures taken at the workplace?
Do you have to work from home?
Has your workload increased/decreased?
Have you lost your job/work/assignments?

The survey contains questions about the home situation of respondents as well as about the possible manifestation of the corona disease in members of the household. Also the effect of having a pet in the house in corona-crisis times is included.

The data will be updated regularly at noon Mondays to Fridays.
