Public perception of government responses

5 October 2020

Nuffield Fellow Francesco Billari and colleagues develop a method called COVID-SCORE, a global survey where participants rate their government’s response to the pandemic. They find that results from the survey correlate with respondents’ reported levels of trust in their government and with country-level COVID-19 mortality rates.
