Perception de la COVID-19 et comportement des ménages en Argentine

Abstract : This article explores Argentinean perceptions and attitudes towards the COVID-19 pandemic. The analysis is based on a telephone survey conducted with a representative sample of 1000 respondents. The analysis shows that Argentines have overwhelmingly approved the health and economic policies followed by their government, and, as a result, have adopted the recommended health behaviour. Among the many factors that have influenced Argentines' perceptions and attitudes, trust in institutions (president, governor, mayor) and, to a lesser extent, to the medical and scientific community emerges as a major determinant. Among the emotions, fear also proves to be a powerful driver of compliance with health regulations. Finally, the results underline the importance of social shock support measures, which help to reduce the costs associated with precautionary behaviour. These findings are robust to the inclusion of a wide set of socio-demographic control variables such as age, gender, education level, place of residence, and individuals’ economic status.
