Drs. Neely Mahapatra and Sukyung Yoon.UW Study Seeks to Understand Socioeconomic Effects of Social Distancing, Isolation

For many people, social distancing, self-isolation and sometimes the need to quarantine have become common practice during the COVID-19 pandemic. While some of the loneliness brought on by this “new normal” can be eased by reading, cooking, online entertainment and talking with friends through social media, an online survey by the University of Wyoming Division of Social Work is being used to look more deeply into the effects of social distancing and isolation.

Neely Mahapatra, an associate professor, and Sukyung Yoon, an assistant professor, both in the UW Division of Social Work in the College of Health Sciences, have partnered with scholars from Canada, South Korea and Singapore to conduct a multi-country study aimed at assessing the impact of the pandemic on the socioeconomic health and well-being of individuals and families.

This web-based survey was developed to recruit participants for the study, focusing on how families and individuals are functioning during isolation. Survey questions focus on the dynamics of personal or family relationships, and experiences of abuse while in isolation or quarantine.
