Health of Boston Special Report: The COVID-19 Experience Among Boston Residents

​Since 1999, the Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) has conducted a biennial survey of Boston residents to learn more about the health issues impacting our residents. This project is called the Boston Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BBRFSS). In December 2020 - January 2021, BPHC conducted a callback of prior BBRFSS respondents to ask about their COVID-19 experiences. This survey, the COVID-19 Health Equity Survey (CHES), has provided new insights to inform policy and practice and identify potential stakeholders related to COVID-19 recovery. Some of the CHES topics included testing experience, attitudes towards vaccination, and impact on employment and needs. 

A report summarizing CHES findings is now available here.
