COPE-ID - COVID-19 Online Prevalence of Emotions in Institutions Database


Our team developed the COVID-19 Online Prevalence of Emotions in Institutions Database (COPE-ID) that captures and organizes online discussions of COVID-19 related to fear, anxiety, and social institutions so that the research community can address an array of research questions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Using COVID-19 related keywords as our search criteria, we used Application Programming Interfaces and Python code to pull data from ten social media and forum platforms: 1) 4chan, 2) 8 kun, 3) Flickr, 4) Gab, 5) Mastodon, 6) Parler, 7) Reddit, 8) Tumblr, 9) Twitter, and 10) YouTube. Data collection date ranges include January 2020 to April 2021.
