COVID-Dynamic Longitudinal Study

2020 Has Certainly Been a Dynamic Year

The COVID-19 pandemic is ravaging the world, and especially the United States. Although it is home to only about 4% of the world population, the U.S. has a much greater percent of the confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths. With the disease still not abating, this is just the beginning.
The pandemic has also triggered dramatic economic upheaval and highlighted long existing societal fissures. Since the killing of George Floyd in May, we've seen the most widespread civil rights movement in decades.
2020 is dynamic - societally and personally. This study seeks to better understand the psychological and experiential factors that influence how Americans are responding to these stresses. What accounts for differences in compliance with public health guidelines? How are events impacting attitudes and psychological traits?
Emotions and beliefs are major factors in decision making. As the pandemic sweeps through the US and other events ripple through society, we hope that this study can provide a better understanding of the emotional factors that are influence people's decision-making.
