About EVENS

What is EVENS?

EVENS is the UK’s first and largest survey of its kind to document the impact of Covid-19, and the lockdowns, on the lives of ethnic and religious minority people. Led by the Centre on the Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE), the survey aims to transform the policy landscape, inform work and campaigns for racial justice, and create a data legacy by providing robust evidence on a comprehensive range of issues facing ethnic and religious minority people during the pandemic.

WHY DOES YOUR OPINION MATTER?

We want to document your experiences of Covid-19 - and the lockdowns - alongside the wider general public, so that we can understand the views of different groups of people to inspire positive change locally and at government level. Your details will remain confidential.

WHAT WILL THE SURVEY COVER?

We will ask about how different areas of your life have been impacted during the pandemic, including your employment, finance, education, economic wellbeing, health, housing, policing, identity and experiences of discrimination and racism.

WHO WILL CONDUCT THE RESEARCH?

The research will be conducted by Ipsos MORI on behalf of researchers at The University of Manchester, The University of St Andrews and The University of Sussex. EVENS is part of the work of the Centre on the Dynamics of Ethnicity.
