Measures: The CRISIS questionnaires include the following domains:

  • Background (e.g., Demographics, Health, Family/living situation)
  • Coronavirus/covid-19 health/exposure status
  • Life changes due to coronavirus/covid-19 crisis
  • Daily behaviors (e.g., sleep, physical activity, time outdoors)

Versions: There are three versions of the CRISIS questionnaires:

  1. BASELINE FORM that is completed at the first contact and includes the following sections: (1) a Background section that obtains some basic demographic information; (2)  Past Three Month assessment of the survey domains shown below; and (3) Past Two Week assessment of the same domains;
  2. CURRENT FORM that is a shorter version of the BASELINE FORM that excludes the Past Three-Month assessment;
  3. FOLLOW UP FORM that assesses the same domains across optional time study-specific periods (e.g., weekly, bi-weekly, monthly).

The Baseline takes about 10-12 minutes and the Follow Up about 5-7 minutes.
