From June 15 to 21, Statistics Canada conducted a new web panel survey to find out the attitudes and concerns of Canadians as COVID-19 restrictions are gradually lifted.
What is a web panel survey?
According to Statistics Canada, a web panel survey is a survey using samples from web panels, i.e. a survey via the web of persons who are willing to participate in such surveys.
Check out some of the results of this survey:
- Immigrants are more likely than Canadian-born people to report that they will take precautions;
- Younger Canadians are less likely to report that they will wear a mask or keep their distance from others;
- Women are more likely than men to report that they will follow rules as safety measures are relaxed;
- The degree of support for some precautions is different across regions. Check out the bar charts for Prairies: https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/pub/11-627-m/11-627-m2020046-eng.htm;
- Among Canadians who are not yet back in their regular workplace, close to 4 in 10 do not feel safe returning.
