Webinar Recording: UIDP & Facebook Research: Support for COVID-19 Research through the Symptom Surveys
The COVID-19 symptom surveys are designed to help researchers better monitor and forecast the spread of COVID-19. In partnership with the University of Maryland and Carnegie Mellon University, Facebook users are invited to take surveys conducted by these two partner universities to self-report COVID-19-related symptoms. The surveys may be used to generate new insights on how to respond to the crisis, including heat maps of self-reported symptoms. This information may help health systems plan where resources are needed and potentially when, where, and how to reopen parts of society.
During this webinar Facebook’s Director of Demography and Survey Science, Curtiss Cobb, as well as Frauke Keuter (Director of the Joint Program in Survey Methodology, UMD), and Alex Reinhart (Assistant Professor, Statistics and Data Science, CMU), to learn how researchers from academic and nonprofit institutions can request access to non-aggregated symptom survey data from Carnegie Mellon University and University of Maryland. After the short presentation, we’ll have a live Q&A.
