(March 2020 – April 2022)
This report summarises the findings and impact of the COVID-19 Social Study, the largest study in the country to understand how the pandemic impacted the UK population during the pandemic.
Part I of this report is a synthesis of our key findings from the study. Part II describes in narrative form the impact the study has had both within and beyond academia.
The study has been, and continues to be, a phenomenal team effort, comprising the scientists behind the study, our funders and advisers, policy, health and community organisations, and our remarkable participants who gave their time so generously. We would like to thank each and every one of them.
