Listening During COVID-19: A Year in Review


In March 2020 as COVID-19 began to spread, we noticed something: nearly all the data about how COVID-19 was impacting people’s lives came from wealthy markets and customers. The 3.5 billion people who are either offline or don’t have access to a smartphone were not part of the conversation. In response, 60 Decibels mobilized to do what we do best: listen to customer voices at scale.

This report is the culmination of our work over the last 9 months, and the voices of over 50,000 people in 32 countries.
