Coronavirus Insights: US Survey Update—Many Shoppers Fear Longer-Term Impacts, Threatening the Holiday Season (Full Report)

What's Inside

Coresight Research’s April 8 survey provides a detailed update on US consumers’ behaviors, concerns and expectations amid the coronavirus crisis. We provide trended findings using results from previous weekly surveys. Among the subjects we surveyed consumers on are:

  • How concerned they are about the coronavirus outbreak, what they are worried about, and how long they think the severe impacts of the outbreak will last.
  • Whether they are buying more or less of any retail categories as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and, if so, which types of products.
  • Newly asked this week—when respondents expect to revert to prior spending levels.
  • Whether they are making more purchases online during the coronavirus outbreak and, if so, which categories.
  • Their concerns about job and income prospects.
  • Whether they are avoiding public spaces or travel and the types of places there are avoiding.
  • Whether they expect to retain changed behaviors even after the COVID-19 outbreak ends and, if so, which.

The findings provide an update to our previous reports, which were based on surveys undertaken on April 1, March 25 and March 17–18. We provide week-over-week comparisons for most metrics.
