Description

We aimed to determine whether there is a relationship between social media use, preventive behavior, the perceived threat of coronavirus, self-efficacy, and socio-demographic characteristics. We used the online sampling technique to interview 310 respondents across Pakistan for a cross-sectional survey. The paper from this data titled "Social Media Use, Self-Efficacy, Perceived Threat and Preventive Behavior in Pakistan in Times of COVID-19: Results of a Cross-Sectional Study in Pakistan" is currently under consideration for publication in Frontiers in Psychology.
