The Rapid Effective Action Development Initiative (READI) (formerly EAARC) is a group of volunteers who conduct research and provide evidence-informed, rigorous and implementable recommendations for practitioners working on significant societal problems.
What are people’s experiences and behaviours in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19)?
The Survey of COVID-19 Responses to Understand Behaviour (SCRUB) project aims to provide current and future policy makers with actionable insights into public attitudes and behaviours relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- We are running a “living survey” – with both repeated cross-sectional and longitudinal sampling – throughout the pandemic.
- We track relevant protective behaviours (e.g., handwashing and social distancing), their variations by demographic and location, and their determinants and interventions.
- After each wave of data collection, we generate and disseminate an updated report to relevant policy actors.
- More than 10,000 surveys in more than 40 countries have already been completed.
