COVID-19 Survey

Dr. Mehran, Assistant Professor of Earth and Geospatial Science within the Lewis F. Rogers Institute for Environmental and Spatial Analysis (IESA), has developed a survey to help UNG investigate the effectiveness of two approaches in providing resilience for the local communities by this event. 

The COVID-19 survey (UNG IRB #2020-060), currently available in multiple languages, will take less than five minutes to complete. Please consider participating in this survey and forwarding the survey to others you might know, both national and international.

About the Survey

Read about the survey in this UNG News article Faculty Member Researches COVID-19 Responses.

The response to extreme events such as the unexpected outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in a society, produces one of two basic responses:

  1. A top-down response provided by governing bodies to handle the situation
    • I.e. policies on using state reserves, regulations on evacuation, quarantine, etc. 
  2. A bottom-up response of a community informed individual as soon as they feel they are vulnerable (public preparedness)
    • I.e. willingness to work at home, preparedness for home quarantine, etc.

 The Survey will focus on these responses and help to answer questions such as:

  • Knowing about the COVID-19 outbreak in Italy/Iran/China (early onset), are U.S. citizens prepared to flatten the curve?
    • What are the lessons from other countries?
  • How have regulations/policies developed by various countries prepared their public and promoted public health?
  • What is the difference relative to resiliency between countries which lack government regulations (i.e. Iran, Iraq) with U.S. and China and how did the local communities contribute to social resilience against COVID-19?
