|Project Title||Multi-Longitudinal Cohort Study into occupational factors and COVID Risk as part of PROTECT National Core Study|
|Lead Applicant||Matthew Gittins|
|Organisation(s) Name(s)||University of Manchester, Thomas Ashton Institute|
Cases of COVID-19 have been high within the UK. This may be due to differences in the types of jobs people do or the places where they work. We want to find out why occupation is important to infection from COVID-19.
Using data collected during the pandemic from study participants from Understanding Society, the Millennium Cohort Study and Next Steps we will be able to:
We will do this whilst dealing with differences in age, gender, and ethnicity. We will compare the jobs and the job roles for each survey, then try to combine the results across the surveys.
The findings of this study will be combined with other similar studies. These results will help provide a better understanding of job roles and COVID-19 infection. They will help us identify how to reduce COVID cases at work. We hope they will inform and improve our response to the current and any future pandemic.
