Short description

Responding to the current lack of data on how citizens have reacted to the COVID-19 outbreak and the measures put in place, the JRC has launched an online survey covering the 27 EU Member States on the effects of the COVID-19 emergency.


Understanding the European  citizens’ perspective on the coronavirus crisis, their experience  and their matters of concern in the months to come is critical for the shaping and implementation of successful human centric recovery and transition strategies.

The survey launched by the JRC aims to increase the understanding of citizen experiences throughout the COVID-19 crisis and thus foster the development of effective strategies to mitigate the impact of the crisis on the people and the economies in the European Union.

The survey results will feed into JRC work on social fairness, energy and transportation use, resilience, privacy and the use of modern communication in the crisis and value.

It will help the JRC to provide insights to policy-makers about the impact and consequences of COVID-19 on individuals in all EU member states, and to develop effective strategies to improve citizens’ lives.

The survey collects information on the impact of COVID-19 on EU citizen’s employment and living conditions, citizen’s trust in the ability of national and European institutions to respond to the crisis and their attitudes towards the national exit strategies.

In addition, there are rotating thematic modules on children, education and family; individual resilience; COVID-19 apps and data sharing, energy consumption, as well as values and morality.

The survey is currently available in 12 languages: Croatian, English, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.
