        The COVID-19 Survey Project

        Date: August – December 2020 
        The COVID-19 Survey project aims to pilot a prediction model to forecast the infection rate of COVID-19. Through a three-phase research project, the study will develop a prediction model suitable to define red lines of reluctancy to incorporate behavioral change in the community. 
        The objectives of the project are to:    
        a. Identify the social characteristics of adaptive behaviors 
        b. Establish a social carry capacity index of adaptive behaviors 
        c. Develop a trained predicting model to forecast the infection rate 

        CIFAL Atlanta is collaborating with faculty from the College of Architecture and Construction Management, College of Computing and Software Engineering, College of Science and Mathematics and Burruss Institute on the research project and actively seeking external funding.
