Wave 3 COVID-19 survey content
Wave 3 of the COVID-19 Survey in Five National Longitudinal Studies took place between February and March 2021.
This third wave repeated many of the questions featured in Waves 1 and 2, enabling researchers to examine how people’s experiences, circumstances and views have changed as the crisis has continued.
Other questions in this wave were new additions, including questions about the vaccination programme and long COVID. Work and finances, a topic covered in the previous waves, featured again in this wave, but with additional questions on pay and household income. Home schooling, physical health and health behaviours, mental health and wellbeing, social contact, family and relationships, and trust are among the other topics explored in this third survey.
Explore the topics covered below and compare them with the content of Wave 1 and Wave 2. The complete questionnaire is also available to download from this page as part of the documentation for the survey data.
