- August 17 – December 31, 2021: Approximately 3,600 monthly completes (typically surveyed during the last two weeks of the month) were collected from 12,000 Gallup Panel members.
- Beginning 2022: Approximately 3,4000 quarterly completes are collected with 8,000 Gallup Panel members.
The survey asks questions assessing the crisis, social distancing, COVID-19 vaccines, personal and financial disruption, workplace change and disruption, U.S. COVID-19 public policy and leadership, COVID-19 and the economy, COVID-19 and the media, and the wellbeing of U.S. adults and children.
It is a web-administered simple random sample survey of Gallup Panel members. The Gallup Panel is a probability-based nationally representative panel of U.S. adults.
