on 13/04/2020

Each week, Leger will publish a survey conducted in partnership with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS), and published in The Canadian Press, to help governments, businesses and citizens better understand the attitudes and behaviours of Canadians in the face of the current health and economic crisis. This series of surveys is available on Leger’s website.

Why was the research conducted?

Research on COVID-19 concerns in collaboration with the Association for Canadian Studies.

How was the research conducted?

This web survey was conducted from April 3 to April 5, 2020, with 1,512 Canadians and 1,000 Americans, 18 years of age or older, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.

Using data from the 2016 Census, the results were weighted by gender, age, mother tongue, region, education level and presence of children in the household in order to ensure a representative sample of the population.

For comparison, a probability sample of 1,512 respondents would have a margin of error of ±2.52%, 19 times out of 20, while a probability sample of 1,000 would have a margin of error of +3.09%, 19 times out of 20. The research results presented here are in full compliance with the CRIC Public Opinion Research Standards and Disclosure Requirements.

What are the key findings of the research?

Leger’s latest survey about COVID-19, conducted in partnership with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS) and published in The Canadian Press, from April 3-5, 2020 among 1,512 Canadians and 1,000 Americans reveals that 44% of Canadians and 41% of Americans have experienced a decrease in their income due to the COVID-19 crisis.
