The 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).
The data visualized here are from the COVID-19 Trends and Impact Survey (CTIS), launched by Facebook in partnership with the Delphi Group at Carnegie Mellon University in the United States and the University of Maryland Social Data Science Center globally. This series of visualizations is an outgrowth of data visualization work Johns Hopkins CCP implemented between September 2020 – March 2021.
