COVID Behaviors Dashboard

Formerly the KAP COVID Dashboard

The Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) COVID Behaviors dashboard was designed to facilitate the interpretation and strategic use of data by program managers, researchers, academics, and policy makers to better understand the behavioral drivers behind vaccine uptake, masking and physical distancing among other behaviors affecting the spread of COVID-19. The dashboard went live in September 2021, and visualized data from 15 survey questions around the topics of vaccines, behavior, knowledge and information and testing. 

The COVID Behaviors Dashboard visualized data at both the national and subnational levels in 115 countries, collected from August 16, 2021 to June 25, 2022 through the COVID-19 Trends and Impact Survey, a global daily survey of Facebook users implemented by the Delphi Group at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Maryland Social Data Science Center in partnership with Facebook/Meta. The COVID Behaviors dashboard was retired in June 2024, however data requests for the United States can be made on the  Delphi Group at Carnegie Mellon University website and for all other countries on the University of Maryland Social Data Science Center’s website.

Three global webinars we held to showcase data use cases. 

KAP COVID Dashboard

The KAP COVID series of data visualizations was the precursor to the COVID Behaviors dashboard. These dashboardsvisualize and disseminate data on knowledge, attitudes, and practices around COVID-19, collected from more than 1.7 million people in 67 countriesfrom June2020–March 2021.The goal was to ensure those who needed the data – policy makers, public health practitioners and WHO officials – were able to use it for decision-making in COVID-19 mitigation and vaccination efforts.
