This data was collected to investigate how intolerance to distress and anxiety affects some of the behaviors that can be changed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. This dataset comes from a survey of 2,868 people in Turkey about the effects of the Covid -19 pandemic. The dataset is ideal for studying how the Covid -19 pandemic shaped people's intolerance to distress and anxiety. The survey looked at personal cleaning habits, bank/credit card usage, online shopping, personal security, and stockpiling. The data also included whether an individual or a household member had been officially diagnosed with Covid-19 and socio-demographic data.
