Description

With the COVID-19 pandemic beginning more than a year ago, we've seen many policies put in place in order to combat the virus. These policies included economic lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccine accessibility. Most people recognized the importance of these policies and acted accordingly while a subset found comfort in resistance. This resistance includes ignoring social distancing, not wearing masks, and denying the science behind vaccines. I wanted to know why this was occurring so I analyzed multiple national surveys while also conducting my own in order to find common trends within the data that could help me answer this.
