The Ministry of the Interior is conducting an awareness survey to understand how foreigners living in Estonia accessed information during the emergency situation caused by the coronavirus. Anyone who lived in Estonia between March 12 - May 17 can take the short online survey.
The research is being conducted with Akkadian OÜ, a communications agency based in Tallinn. The survey is part of the study which also combines face-to-face interviews and focus groups.
The survey is strictly anonymous and all foreigners who stayed in Estonia during the emergency situation - from March 12 until May 17, 2020 - are invited to participate.
A press release from Akkadian OÜ about the survey says: "The emergency situation was a unique situation where everyone needed information, but it was not readily available in all languages. To improve future communication with people living in Estonia, the government is conducting research to better understand what are some of the shortcomings of the information available in languages other than Estonian and where there is room for growth.
"To achieve this, the Ministry of the Interior invites foreigners living in Estonia to participate in an awareness survey. The aim of the research is to make national information more accessible for non-Estonian speaking people."
