The WageIndicator Foundation announces the Continuous Global Online Survey ‘Living and Working in Corona Times’!

WageIndicator shows coronavirus-induced changes in living and working conditions in 110 countries. The changes are visualised in maps and graphs. These infographics show, from day to day, the consequences the large majority of the working population of the world experiences, on the basis of answers to the following questions in the Corona survey:

  • Is your work affected by the corona crisis?
  • Are precautionary measures taken at the workplace?
  • Do you have to work from home?
  • Has your workload increased/decreased?
  • Have you lost your job/work/assignments?

First results show an enormous impact of the coronavirus on work in general. In the Netherlands for instance, a country severely hit, 95 percent of participants in the survey state that their work is impacted by the corona-crisis.

The survey contains questions about the home situation of respondents as well as about the possible manifestation of the corona disease in members of the household. Also the effect of having a pet in the house in corona-crisis times is included.
