Lhe brand new “Project Quorum” web application allows you to find out about the perceptions of the Quebec population in the face of COVID-19.
The research team defined eight roles played by different groups of the population. Are you a leader, a wise man, a rebel or an explorer? A series of questions determines which side each person leans on.
The project is launched by the research team of the Leadership Chair in Digital Social Science Education (CLESSN) at Laval University. The results are therefore strictly used for the purpose of research. Above all, they allow the population to know a little more about the society in which it operates.
The data collected will in no case be for profit.
“The pandemic creates several issues and mixes our benchmarks. The aim is to use a tool developed by researchers to understand the environment in which citizens find themselves, and to help citizens navigate it, ”explains Yannick Dufresne, assistant professor in political science, holder of the CLESSN and one of the creators of the project.
The participant must answer 25 well-targeted questions around three issues arising from COVID-19, chosen by the researchers: public health, democracy and then science and technology.
“By doing analyzes, we are able to identify eight types of reactions, a way of reacting to the crisis. Mutually exclusive groups, ”notes the professor.
In addition to being assigned a role, users will be able to determine their personalized profile and compare themselves to the rest of the population.
Projet Quorum therefore makes it possible to monitor changes in public perceptions surrounding crisis management, mainly the mood of individuals with regard to the pandemic and the health measures put in place to counter it.
I hope you are in health and well.
