Analysis Plan TitleAssociations between COVID and mental health in students
Analysis Plan DescriptionThe COVID-19 pandemic has impacted millions of people mentally and physically. The purpose of this study is to identify major mental health stressors associated with COVID-19 (e.g., fear of contracting, fear of spreading, increased academic concerns, etc.) among students. Thus the aims of this study are to (1) assess the association between COVID-19 and mental health of college and university students, and (2) assess the association between mental health of college and university students and the different coping mechanisms they have adopted since the outbreak. Depending on the sample size, this could include focusing on (a) those with the highest mental health stressors/concerns due to COVID-19, (b) sex differences, or (c) whether COVID-19 related mental health effects is a moderator for coping mechanisms. To address these objectives, we are asking for the data relating to COVID-19 stressors, mental health impacts, coping mechanisms, and student-specific questions in Survey 5. Using these data, we will perform statistical analysis through descriptive statistics of the sample, and multiple logistic regression with the use of particular coping mechanisms (e.g., used more than before vs. less or the same) as the outcomes focusing either on controlling for demographic and socioeconomic characteristics (e.g., age, perceived income ranking, etc.) or by performing a comparative analysis (e.g., sex comparison, perceived income ranking, etc.).
