This study provided data on the impact of covid-19 on the health and well-being of Portuguese respondents. Results show that they reported their health to be worse than before the pandemic and that access to healthcare was greatly affected, with surgeries or medical appointments cancelled or postponed.
In the current context of the COVID-19 pandemic, technologies such as the mobile phone are a double-edged sword. The results of this study show that, on the one hand, problematic use of mobile technologies is associated with lower levels of well-being among young adults. On the other hand, Portuguese young adults believe that mobile technologies have been essential to their well-being through the lockdowns and social distancing rules triggered by the pandemic.
The Social Observatory of the ”la Caixa” Foundation is opening a new call to support research projects in the social sciences in which data are used from quantitative surveys on the social impact of Climate Change, in Portugal.
Young people in both countries use mobile phones in similar ways, but there are slight differences between profiles that may influence their well-being.
