Given that the significant long-term social impact of the COVID-19 pandemic can be likened to that of a disaster, the Committee of Infrastructure Planning and Management has decided to conduct an online disaster survey. The results of the 9th survey have now been tabulated and are reported below.

In addition, the survey results (simple and cross-tabulation tables) and the raw data of the survey are available to anyone who satisfies the conditions of use. Please follow the steps below to download the file.

Purpose of the survey

To understand the impact of the spread of COVID-19 and the government’s request to its citizens to refrain from social and economic activities related to transportation, as well as urban, social, and economic activities, and to collect basic data with which to propose national land and urban planning, industrial structural policy, and transportation and logistics policy in light of that impact, potentially contributing to mitigation of damage and ensuring resilience against pandemics.
