The AEI COVID-19 and American Life Survey looks at Americans’ personal experiences with coronavirus and their attitudes toward returning to their pre-pandemic activities. The national survey of 3,504 adults was conducted online and over the phone using NORC’s probability-based AmeriSpeak panel. The survey details the personal financial experiences and hardships faced by Americans as the economy contracted and many schools, businesses, and public places were closed. The survey also measures Americans’ level of comfort in engaging in a variety of social activities, such as eating out at a restaurant, getting a haircut, or attending an in-person worship service. Finally, the survey also explored the amount of time Americans were spending on daily activities, such as exercising, taking a walk, reading, or doing housework.
