A study about following Covid-19 recommendations

Researchers at Linköping University currently conducts a study on following Covid-19 recommendations among college- and university students.Currently the second wave of data collection among Master students (Linköping University) and students at other university in Sweden is taking place. To participate in the study, students have to use the link provided in the invitation e-mailed to their LiU e-mail.



Until a vaccine for Covid-19 (Sars-Cov-2) is effective, the best course in protecting ourselves and others is to follow public recommendations related to Covid-19.


Yet Covid-19 recommendations change and are sometimes difficult to understand. People differ in how they follow with those recommendations, and scientists seek to understand what drives these differences to help generate better information to the public.


A scientific understanding of following recommendations is one of the most relevant goal both for the current crisis and for future pandemics.


The aim of our project is to generate a better understanding of following Covid-19 recommendations by collecting anonymous self-reported data from students in Sweden. The project is supported by Linköping University and the Swedish research board FORMAS.


Most of LiU Master students got the e-mail inviting them to participate in this study. Check your email to see whether you got the invitation.


  • All data you provide will be confidential and anonymised. No teacher of yours will have access to the data.

  • This study is about Swedish college and university student's following COVID-19 recommendations.

  • You can participate if you are at least 18 years old and a student at a Swedish university or colleague.

  • This survey will take about 25 minutes to complete

  • You do not have to participate and can abort at any time

  • You can skip any of the questions if you do not want to answer any particular question.

  • Your answers will only be recorded if you finish this survey completely, so please finish to the end.

  • If you participate, you will have a chance to win one out of ten super-gift cards each worth 1000 SEK.


Most of LiU Master students got the e-mail inviting them to participate in this study. By participating (finishing the survey) your e-mail address will be included in the lottery.

However, if you recommend the survey to other students in the cohort or other LiU Master students who got the invitation to take part in the study, they can inform us that you referred them at the end of the study by providing us with your LiU e-mail address. For each referral you will receive an extra entry into the final lottery.


  • Read questions carefully, but do not overthink, answer as honestly and quickly as you can.

  • If no answer provided suits you, please choose the one that applies the most. If such an answer is not offered or if you do not know the answer and cannot take a good guess, you may skip the question.

  • When we ask you about your friends in general, you may find it difficult to answer due to many different groups of friends (e.g. in different countries) that you have. We advise you to think about the one group of friends that you feel are most important to you.

  • When we ask how your friends’ follow Covid-19 recommendations, be aware that the recommendations differ across countries and answer having that in mind. For instance, someone not wearing a mask in Spain is not following the recommendations, but in Sweden that behaviour is in accordance with the recommendations.


  • If something interrupts you while answering the survey, you can save your previous answers by pressing the “Save” button in the right corner, and continue the survey later. However, we advise you to try to finish it in one go.

  • If you need to go to the previous page, please use the “Previous” button in the left corner of the webpage, do not use the browser’s back page option.

  • If the font is too small for you, use ctrl + (Windows) or cmd + (Mac) keys to make it bigger You are ready to start.
