Last chance to complete important COVID-19 survey for British Jews. Closing Sunday evening.
COVID-19 SURVEY OF JEWS IN THE UK
Your experience matters
A major Jewish communal survey is taking place right now to gather data about how COVID-19 is impacting Jews across the United Kingdom. Conducted by the Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR), it is gathering the thoughts and experiences of Jews living in the UK who are aged 16 and over. If that applies to you, we would like to invite you to complete the survey.
The research aims to gather valuable insights into how the coronavirus pandemic has affected Jews in terms of their health, employment, social relationships and Jewish lives. This will allow us all to better understand the overall impact the virus has had, and provide Jewish charities and organisations working across the community with the information they need to help them respond effectively to the crisis. All data will be held securely and will only be used for research purposes. Personal data will never be shared with third parties. Your individual answers will be treated in the strictest confidence and no individuals will be able to be identified in the results.
The survey also offers everyone who participates an opportunity to join JPR’s Jewish ‘research panel’ – a new research initiative designed to gather information over time about Jewish opinion on a wide range of issues, from social care and welfare to Israel and antisemitism. So whilst the survey we are inviting you to take part in today focuses specifically on COVID-19, you will also be asked if you would like to participate in an ongoing research programme to share your views on a number of other issues that matter to all of us. Joining the panel does not commit you to anything; it simply ensures that you will be invited to complete up to four short surveys per year, so we hope you will choose to join us.
Your views and experiences matter, and we are very eager to ensure that as many people as possible take part.
