Best Practices for Measuring the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Impact of Epidemics
ICPSR has published a new report in the University of Michigan's Deep Blue repository titled "ICPSR Working Paper 2: Best Practices for Measuring the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Impact of Epidemics."
This report reviews best practices for using data resources from ICPSR, its projects, and its collaborating partners for measuring the impact of epidemics. The report summarizes resources to identify measures of well-being, social connectedness, and other constructs to measure the social and behavioral effects of the COVID-19 epidemic on population health outcomes. It also suggests data resources to identify pre-crisis measures of social distancing, social networks, consumer confidence, unemployment, and the use of social media.
