Signals #10: Understanding the coronavirus crisis – the story so far

This special tenth edition of our Signals digest recaps on the content we have featured across the series and looks back at some of the defining moments of the crisis so far.

Since its appearance at the start of the year, COVID-19 has continued to spread, affecting almost every country in the world. Things moved quickly: the progression from outbreak to pandemic was soon accompanied by the swift imposition of lockdowns in many countries. More recently, we have seen the gradual re-opening of society and the economy, at a time when the virus is still showing its capacity to spread out of control.

During this period, our Signals series has showcased some of the best of Ipsos’ research and analysis from our teams around the world. Each edition has been curated to help us all better understand the dynamics of the pandemic, charting our key learnings and identifying how attitudes and behaviours are evolving.

In this tenth edition, we provide an index to the content we have featured across the series, including:

  • The public mood – insights from our weekly coronavirus opinion polling
  • The bigger picture – tracking public attitudes and trends over time
  • Research insights – a selection of our key research reports and findings
  • Expert perspectives – our Ipsos Views thought leadership from our Signals series
  • Social listening – analysis from our social intelligence data
  • Spotlights on countries – some of our headline polls and reports from around the world
  • Webinars and podcasts – exploring public opinion and featuring expert insights

Building on our series of Signals webinars, a new Ipsos webinar series begins on September 10 and you can register for the first session now. We will be taking a look at what the latest research is telling us about people’s motivations and behaviours as they experience this increasingly multi-dimensional crisis. This will include a look at how building our understanding of the role played by different cultures can help us develop a more nuanced picture of what’s happening.
