Data shared in this platform is data related to quality of life and domains in Medan City, North Sumatra Province, Indonesia. Medan City is the third largest city in Indonesia with a population of around 2.5 million. Medan city is certainly not spared from the Covid-19 Pandemic although judging by the percentage it is only 2-3% of the total Covid-19 sufferers in Indonesia. The quality of life measured is the quality of life of the community after 2 months of applying Physical Distancing. The application of Physical Distancing certainly has an impact on the declining quality of life of the people. By measuring the quality of life of the people during this pandemic, it is expected to be able to provide an overview for all stakeholders related to the impact of a pandemic and the policies undertaken in relation to the pandemic on the quality of life of people in an area. In the future, this is expected to be a good reference regarding pandemics and policies that should be implemented.


Steps to reproduce

Data was collected using a questionnaire that was adapted from WHOQOL instruments which are often used to measure the quality of life of the community, which is then adjusted to the local context. The questionnaire distributed must use Indonesian language. Data was collected for 1 month from mid-May to mid-June 2020 using the Googleform application. The measurement of the quality of life of the people was carried out after 2 months the Indonesian government implemented Physical Distancing which began on March 23, 2020. The data collected was then filtered so that the number of respondents who met the desired criteria was 370 respondents. Filtering is done because respondents who fill out the questionnaire are not only people who live in the city of Medan, so respondents who come from outside the city of Medan do not meet the criteria of the research sample.
