One Year of COVID-19, One Year of Surveys

Leger is proud to have contributed to the fight against COVID-19 by publishing a major weekly North American survey. This survey about social, health and economic issues, conducted in collaboration with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS), and published in The Canadian Press, has been ongoing since March 2020.   

The information gathered, including fear of the virus, economic and consumer decisions, vaccination, mental health, and government actions, helped political, business, health, and school leaders adjust their decisions and communications. Moreover, all our surveys are available free of charge on our website.  

Together, each in our own way, we will eradicate this virus.

For comparison, a probability sample of 1,512 respondents would have a margin of error of ±2.52%, 19 times out of 20, while a probability sample of 1,003 would have a margin of error of ±3.09%, 19 times out of 20.
