COVID-19 Survey Reports

ALSWH’s COVID-19 Surveys provide timely insight into women’s health and wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The surveys were sent out via email every fortnight from late April until late October 2020. The participants were from three ALSWH cohorts born 1989-95, 1973-78, and 1946-51.

Each rapid survey includes:

  • Set questions on women’s recent symptoms and testing
  • Questions on a themed topic – e.g. stress, living arrangements, access to healthcare services, drinking habits, experience of abuse
  • An opportunity to provide free-text comments
