One Year of Gallup's COVID-19 Findings

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On March 13, 2020 -- the day President Donald Trump declared the COVID-19 pandemic a national emergency -- Gallup began tracking Americans' behaviors, worries and anticipations about the health crisis.

One year later, after 137,214 interviews, Gallup will recap the story of American life over the past 12 months, including:

  • the impact of the pandemic on U.S. work life: remote work, job loss and more
  • how Americans' wellbeing has fared during the crisis
  • how Americans have altered their activities
  • what Americans expect for the near and long-term future because of the crisis, and how their expectations have changed over the past year
  • their confidence in the management of the pandemic and approval of government figures' roles in controlling it
  • the toll the coronavirus situation has taken on economic confidence and Americans' personal finances

Gallup will continue to measure these trends as the pandemic wears on. Follow our latest updates here.
