COVID tracking

The Social Science Research Institute of the University of Iceland (SSRI) has been exploring the attitude towards various affairs related to the Covid-19 pandemic. Each day a survey is sent to 400 members of the internet panel of SSRI; that's how it's possible to track how Icelanders attitude changes over time. Below is a link to the dashboard (in Icelandic). In addition it's possible to view results broken down by a few demographics, such as gender, age, and education. Results are updated regularly, therefor it's useful to look at this page regularly. If you have questions about the project, you can contact Ævar Þórólfsson, a project manager at SSRI (
