This is a representative survey of the Austrian population aged 20-64 (N=2000) with detailed information on socio-demographics and impact of the pandemic on informal care (e.g. changes to intensity, prevalence and wellbeing and economic situation of carers), unmet needs and health, employment and income and education. A second wave is planned to be fielded in early 2021, making this a longitudinal survey allowing for more detailed analysis of data on heath and informal care, among other outputs.
