The massive societal-level shock due to the COVID-19 leads people to change both behavior and perception and raises the concern about ensuring both the overall healthy life and economy. However, this is challenged by the worsening socio-demographic inequality, which in turn exacerbates not only the spread of the coronavirus, but also people’s normal life amidst and post the crisis. This paper examines how people’s behavior and perception change and the disparate role of their socio-demographic characteristics. A large-scale survey is used to take questions regarding different aspects of impact of COVID-19 on people from six representative countries. The regression analysis is applied to discover how different socio-demographic backgrounds affect behaviors and perceptions changes. This research also explored how people’s agreement attitude toward government policy relate with their behavior and perception changes, by delving into the interplay between them using structural modeling approach. Our findings may shed light on how government should devise the more targeted emergency response plans by focusing on reducing the socio-demographic inequality.
