About Covid:WIRED

Covid:WIRED – The Covid Wellbeing Inequalities Research Evidence Dashboard

Covid:WIRED* is a database of studies that identifies what aspects of life have been affected by the pandemic, as well as which individuals have been most impacted by these changes. 

Our new and unique online dashboard brings together emerging research on the impact of the pandemic on different populations and on different outcomes – starting with subjective wellbeing and its six drivers: 

  • Health
  • What we do
  • Relationships
  • Money
  • Where we live
  • Education

The dashboard is a collection of over 400 findings from research that have been organised with wellbeing domains on the vertical axis and dimension of inequality along the horizontal axis.

You can search by domain, inequality dimension, or filter the results by study design and whether the evidence suggests the wellbeing change was positive or negative, or widened or narrowed existing wellbeing inequalities.
