Abstract

COVID-19 Impact Survey for Filipinos in Oregon

Data about Filipino populations tend to be obscured when aggregated into the Asian and/or Asian and Pacific Islander category. Filipinos are hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and yet there is little information about them. As a result, COVID-19 Impact Survey was developed for Filipinos in Oregon to better understand their needs arising from the COVID-19 crisis. It is modeled after the Massachusetts Department of Public Health’s COVID-19 Community Impact Survey. It has been translated into both English and Tagalog. After finalization of the survey, it has been piloted by National Alliance for Filipino Concerns - Oregon (NAFCON-OR) in both English and Tagalog to get qualitative feedback.

Survey items include Awareness and perception of COVID-19, Experiences of COVID-19, Comorbid Conditions, and the Impact of COVID-19 on Mental Health, Basic Needs, Finances, and Healthcare Access. The data collection method is a convenient sample that will collect detailed demographic information (disaggregated race and ethnicity, county and zip code). It is currently live online via Google Forms and is open to all self-identified Filipinos in Oregon above the age of 18. It will be open for responses for the next six months and is expected to have at least 200 responses. The anticipated results will contribute to a better understanding of what local public health and NAFCON-OR can do to address those needs now, align program planning, response efforts, and plan for long-term support.
