The Socioeconomic Effects of
SARS-CoV-2 on Canadian Youth
In 2020, Race to a Cure released a research study investigating the immediate effects of the pandemic on the youth demographic under two main categories: economic and social. The study’s data was collected via a randomized and anonymous google form survey, polling 105 Canadian students. Through the study, we mapped trends in productivity and anxiety regarding job prospects in Canadian students.
Seeing the general lack of knowledge surrounding the SARS-CoV-2 virus, Race to A Cure’s pandemic visualization taskforce conducted an extensive review of current information available on various topics of interest. The team investigated the availability of medical resources in Canadian hospitals, the correlating, testing and reporting of cases, and chronic illness patient protection. Collected datasets are presented in visual formats.
