On 9 April 2020, Eurofound launched an e-survey targeted at the population over 18 years of age. The survey aimed to capture the immediate changes caused by the Covid-19 pandemic in regard to quality of life, well-being, work situation, work–life balance and level of teleworking during the lockdown.

Half of all Europeans declared a reduction in hours worked
