  • Abstract

    On behalf of the Press and Information Office of the Federal Government, the opinion research institute forsa has regularly conducted representative population surveys on the subject of the ´Corona crisis´ (COVID-19) from calendar week 12/2020. The individual question areas were adapted according to the survey period. Topics: worries about one´s own infection with the coronavirus; worries about family members or friends being infected with the coronavirus; worries about infecting other people oneself; other worries in context with the corona virus (open question); credibility of the information provided by the Federal Government on the corona crisis; assessment of the political measures taken to contain the corona virus; assessment of various statements in connection with the political measures to contain the corona virus as probable (the German government exaggerates the risk posed by the corona virus to public health, the corona virus was deliberately circulated, if a corona vaccine is available everyone in Germany will be allowed to decide voluntarily whether to be vaccinated, if there is an app for tracing infection chains, everyone in Germany will be allowed to decide voluntarily whether to install this app, the wearing of mouth and nose masks in supermarkets or on public transport is harmful to health). Demography: sex; age (grouped); employment; education; net household income (grouped); party preference in the next general election; voting behaviour in the last general election. Additionally coded: region; weight.
