  • Surveys commissioned by the Press and Information Office of the Federal Government
    The ´Press and Information Office of the Federal Government´ (Presse- und Informationsamt der Bundesregierung) infoms citizens and media about the work of the federal government. Above all the office informs the federal government of the news in Germany and worldwide and explores the public opinion.
  • Trend Questions Corona: Surveys commissioned by the Press and Information Office of the Federal Government
    On behalf of the Press and Information Office of the German Federal Government, the opinion research institute Forsa has regularly (initially weekly, later biweekly, less frequently when the infection situation subsided) conducted representative population surveys on the topic of the ´Corona crisis´ (COVID-19) starting in calendar week 12/2020. The individual question areas were adapted according to the survey period, but often included
    - concerns about infection and other concerns
    - Evaluation of the measures taken so far
    - Credibility of the information provided by the Federal Government

    Several times they were also asked about:
    - Interest in the topic
    - Evaluation of the scope of reporting
    - Self-assessment Informedness
    - Information behaviour
    - Current place of work (home office)
    - Settings for the Corona Warning App
    - Vaccination
