COVID Behaviors Dashboard

Formerly the KAP COVID Dashboard

The Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs COVID Behaviors dashboard presents data from a global survey of knowledge, attitudes and practices around COVID-19.

Insights and analyses on how to use the data were written by researchers and social and behavior change communication experts at Johns Hopkins CCP in collaboration with WHO’s Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network (GOARN). This content differentiates this resource from other presentations of COVID-related data. This site is intended to be used by policy makers, officials and practitioners at national and subnational levels to better understand the behavioral drivers behind vaccine uptake, masking and physical distancing among other behaviors that affect the spread of COVID-19.

When viewing the charts, graphs and maps in this dashboard, be sure to click on the Insights icon on the sidebar of that visual to access additional analysis.

This series of visualizations is an outgrowth of data visualization work Johns Hopkins CCP implemented between September 2020 – March 2021. The previous series of five visualizations was known collectively as the KAP COVID dashboards. These five visualizations, along with more information on this work can be found here.

About the Data
