This N = 173,426 social science dataset was collected through the collaborative COVIDiSTRESS Global Survey - an open science effort to improve understanding of the human experiences of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic between 30th March and 30th May, 2020. The dataset allows a cross-cultural study of psychological and behavioural responses to the Coronavirus pandemic and associated government measures like cancellation of public functions and stay at home orders implemented in many countries. The dataset contains demographic background variables as well as measures of Asian Disease Problem, perceived stress (PSS-10), availability of social provisions (SPS-10), trust in various authorities, trust in governmental measures to contain the virus (OECD trust), personality traits (BFF-15), information behaviours, agreement with the level of government intervention, and compliance with preventive measures, along with a rich pool of exploratory variables and written experiences. A global consortium from 39 countries and regions worked together to build and translate a survey with variables of shared interests, and recruited participants in 47 languages and dialects. Raw plus cleaned data and dynamic visualizations are available.


Univariate Sample Size Determination by Alternative Components: Issues on Design Efficiency for Complex Samples
Yozgatlıgil, Ceylan (Exeley, Inc., 2018-06-01)
Sample size determination for any sample survey can be based on the desired objectives of the survey as well as the level of confidence of the desired estimates for some survey variables, the desired precision of the survey results and the size of the population. In addition to these, the cost of enumeration can also be considered as an important criterion for sample size determination. Recently, some international organizations have been using univariate sample size determination approaches for their multi...
Effective feature reduction for link prediction in location-based social networks
Bayrak, Ahmet Engin; Polat, Faruk (SAGE Publications, 2019-10-01)
In this study, we investigated feature-based approaches for improving the link prediction performance for location-based social networks (LBSNs) and analysed their performances. We developed new features based on time, common friend detail and place category information of check-in data in order to make use of information in the data which cannot be utilised by the existing features from the literature. We proposed a feature selection method to determine a feature subset that enhances the prediction perform...
Assessing internationality of scholarly journals through foreign authorship patterns: the case of major journals in information science, and scientometrics
Uzun, A (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-01-01)
This article reports findings from a study of patterns of foreign authorship of articles, and international composition of journal editorial boards in five leading journals in the field of information science, and scientometrics. The study covers an American journal and four European journals. Bibliographic data about foreign authors and their national affiliation from five selected years of publication were analyzed for all journals. The foreign input of articles were extremely high in Information Processi...
Robust estimation and hypothesis testing under short-tailedness and inliers
Akkaya, Ayşen (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2005-06-01)
Estimation and hypothesis testing based on normal samples censored in the middle are developed and shown to be remarkably efficient and robust to symmetric short-tailed distributions and to inliers in a sample. This negates the perception that sample mean and variance are the best robust estimators in such situations (Tiku, 1980; Dunnett, 1982).
A marginalized multilevel model for bivariate longitudinal binary data
Inan, Gul; İlk Dağ, Özlem (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-06-01)
This study considers analysis of bivariate longitudinal binary data. We propose a model based on marginalized multilevel model framework. The proposed model consists of two levels such that the first level associates the marginal mean of responses with covariates through a logistic regression model and the second level includes subject/time specific random intercepts within a probit regression model. The covariance matrix of multiple correlated time-specific random intercepts for each subject is assumed to ...
