WageIndicator is surveying/ interviewing people around the world to discover what makes the Coronavirus lockdown easier (or tougher), and what is the COVID-19 effect on our jobs, lives and mood. The results are shown in maps and graphs for 110 countries, updated on a daily basis. The Corona-survey addresses not only changing working conditions and circumstances, it also covers aspects such as the development of the corona-disease given manifest symptoms in individual cases, living and working space at home, family composition, and the impact pets may have on our moods in times of confinement.

Survey- Life with Corona captures the voices and moods of citizens from around the world affected by the Corona-pandemic, collecting data for better analysis. Life with Corona is a charitable citizen science project based on rigorous academic methods. The questionnaire includes various modules that allow a comprehensive insight into daily life during the pandemic. Life with Corona was initiated by a team of scientists from ISDC, IGZ, UNU-WIDER and IDS and cooperates closely with international partners. The study started on 23 March 2020 and will continue throughout 2020 at least. It is conducted by an international team of researchers and volunteers led by Professor Tilman Brück of IGZ and ISDC.
