Description

The current data from 537 Pakistanis tells us about their trust in different information sources, use of news media, and perception of misinformation regarding COVID-19 in Pakistan. The dataset includes variables such as age, marital status, gender, social class, residential area, trust in source of information, use of news media for coronavirus information, and perception of misinformation regarding COVID-19 in Pakistan. We used Qualtrics to collect data via an online survey that was conducted between 24 April and 12 May 2020. This data will help future research to understand national and international scholarship relating to COVID-19.
