IDinsight: Rapid Feedback for the Government of India on COVID-19 Knowledge, Behaviour Change, and Economic Effects

IDinsight’s Data on Demand team is collecting data from 27 of the poorest districts (NITI mentored Aspirational Districts) across eight states in India. We are collecting data on COVID-related awareness, health practices, economic impacts, migration, consumption patterns, and more. Our plan is to conduct four rounds of data collection from April to July 2020 with district-level representativeness to monitor changes over time and inform actions of government and civil society. We are targeting 50 percent female respondents.

Client: NITI (National Institution for Transforming India) Aayog and other officials at the national and state levels
Funder: Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
