Life during the Coronavirus outbreak
As the Coronavirus outbreak continues around the world, understanding how people in Britain are spending their time and how they are feeling is all the more important. The information you provide will help to show what day-to-day life is really like and how things like your leisure time, childcare, or ways of working have changed, and continue to change. Your answers will help to inform decisions on matters such as education policies and health initiatives.
Initial findings from the study found that, in March and April 2020, Britons were spending less time travelling and working, and more time gardening, doing DIY and resting. But the experience was different for those with the lowest household incomes, who increased their total time in paid work and were less likely to have started working at home. This may reflect the fact that those in the lowest income groups are more likely to be key workers than those in the highest income groups. For more details visit the ONS website.
By taking part, you will help us to understand how people’s experiences and behaviours are changing as the pandemic continues and lockdown measures change.
