Analysis Plan TitleSex- and gender-related determinants of public perceptions and behavioral responses to the COVID-19 outbreak: a multi-countries comparison study
Analysis Plan DescriptionUsing the iCARE survey data, we will perform a sex-stratified global analysis of public engagement in the four key protective health behaviors, including: (i) hand washing, (ii) wearing a face mask, (iii) staying at least 1-2 meters away from other people, and (iv) avoiding large social gatherings. We will provide descriptive analyses sex-stratified for: gender-related factors such as age, level of education, work status, country of residence, Gender Inequality Index (GII), and baseline mental health conditions (any depressive or anxiety disorders). We will look for sex differences in outcomes (protective health behaviors) and test the association between sex, gender-related factors, and outcomes in an adjusted multivariable model. We will perform bivariate logistic regressions for crude analysis followed by backward stepwise selection method for adjusted odds ratios (OR). A priori gender-related cofactors (age, education level, work status, household income, and GII) along with all other variables in bivariate analysis will be included in multivariable models
