(CPSS-COVID) Canadian Perspective Survey Series - COVID 19

Description

The Canadian Perspectives Survey Series (CPSS) is a set of short, online surveys beginning in March 2020 that will be used to collect information on the knowledge and behaviours of residents of the 10 Canadian provinces. All surveys in the series will be asked of Statistics Canada’s probability panel. The probability panel for the CPSS is a new pilot project initiated in 2019. An important goal of the CPSS is to directly collect data from Canadians in a timely manner in order to inform policy makers and be responsive to emerging data needs. The CPSS is designed to assess the quality and viability of a more timely collection model using willing participants and web-only collection. CPSS is designed to produce data at a national level (excluding the territories).
