Name March 2020 - Public Opinion on Coronavirus- Palestine

Juzoor for Health and Social Development, in collaboration with Jerusalem Media and Communications Centre, conducted a poll to examine public awareness and perceptions regarding the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, in Palestine, as well as changes in behaviors, and trust in the government’s handling of the outbreak. 

The sample size of 600 was estimated based on confidence level (95%), confidence interval (4), and population size (1714620 Palestinian adults living in the West Bank)1. Multistage random sampling was used to randomly select 600 Palestinians 18 years and older residing in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem (J2). Phone numbers were randomly generated for each district to select households. One participant was then randomly selected from each household using the Kish Table. Phone interviews lasted around 10 minutes, and the response rate was 83%. Data was collected between March 29-31, 2020. 

Around 52% of poll respondents were female; the mean age of respondents was 40 years; 26% were single and 68% were married; 57% had completed their education up to high school; 10% were students; around 30% were employed; 58% operated their own private business; and 8% were unemployed.
