    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: Concerns about infection with the Corona virus (self and family members or friends); concerns about infecting other people yourself; other concerns related to the Corona virus (open question); credibility of the information provided by the federal government on the corona crisis; assessment of the political measures taken so far to contain the corona virus; extent of perceived personal restrictions due to the corona crisis and related measures; willingness in principle to be vaccinated against the corona virus as soon as a vaccine is approved in Germany; reasons why the respondent would (probably) not get vaccinated against the Corona virus. Demography: sex; age (grouped); employment; education; net household income (grouped); party preference in the next federal election; voting behaviour in the last federal election. Additionally coded: region; federal state; weight.
