Ziele der Studie

The research explored how COVID-19-related restrictive policies, such as a lockdown or social distancing, affected people’s well-being.


The publication consists out of two different studies. Study 1 is a cross-sectional online survey, exploring the associations between socio-economic characteristics, the number of resources, their relative change, people’s stress levels and their support of restrictive policies.

In Study 2, an experience-sampling survey, participants ratde their well-being and level of available resources daily for one month. The aim was to observe the daily increases in well-being.


The data is available and can be found on the project page in the Open Science Framework. A registration is necessary.
