Scientific Questions Being Studied

My research partner and I will be exploring the effects of that the COVID-19 lockdown had on physical activity and if there are any possible correlations to mental health decline and other health related issues. We wanted to explore this data as we feel as though it is important to try to maintain a healthy lifestyle as best as possible, but we know that not everyone may have the necessary resources to do so. We plan on looking at demographics and wearable data to help determine the health of participants before during and hopefully after the lockdown, and may be able o find a way that we can encourage those to get outside for just a few minutes a day.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Educational

Scientific Approaches

we plan on looking at the wearable fitbit data, COVID surveys, and some of the basic surveys as well.

Anticipated Findings

We anticipate that we will find that the pandemic lockdown caused a decline in physical activity which resulted in an increase in associated disease related to lack of physical activity.

Demographic Categories of Interest

  • Race / Ethnicity
  • Age
  • Sex at Birth
  • Gender Identity
  • Geography
  • Disability Status
  • Access to Care
  • Education Level
  • Income Level

We plan on looking at demographic and wearable data to help determine the health of participants before during and after the lockdown, and may be able to find a way that we can encourage those to exercise more often in a day.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Educational

Scientific Approaches

We plan on using R coding to analyze the data, along with using the wearable data, demographics, and mental health data that is available at the time.

Anticipated Findings

The anticipated finding is that the lockdown caused a decline in physical activity, and an increase in other serious health related issues such as blood pressure, weight, and mental disorders.
