    Abstract

    Thanks for taking a look at this summary of the preliminary results from our UK COVID-19 Lockdown 18-60 Experiences survey, conducted between November 2020 and January 2021. In this report we present a short preliminary summary of the responses of the 916 cisgender heterosexual people who replied to our invitation to participate in a nationwide survey. Our results highlight the many and varied experiences across the UK at this time. Missing social events and a chance of a holiday break were rated as big problems by over half of our respondents, perhaps indicating the inaccessibility of usual patterns of relaxation for many of our survey respondents. And for some the high rates of problems around mental health and well-being are concerning. However, while our survey highlighted problems during the pandemic, it also highlighted the positive gains from changing patterns for many, particularly around non-commuting working lifestyles, increased online opportunities, more time at home with partners and children, and time to enjoy taking on new projects and activities. We continue to explore our data to examine the balance of problems and pluses from pandemic times among different groups of people.
