Data Collection and Reporting

The study explores where and how Black women are obtaining information that pertains to COVID-19, along with the impacts that COVID-19 may be having on their daily lives. A codebook was developed based on the recorded interviews, which included deductive and inductive codes. A thematic analysis of the data was then conducted using MaxQDA (Verbi Software), focusing on Black women’s experiences related to COVID-19. The majority of participants were using a combination of social media platforms and news sources to obtain information about COVID-19.
