The survey began in September 2020 and is still ongoing, with over 77,000 participants (as of January 31, 2022). The baseline survey comprises of 94 questions across six key domains:  

  1. Demographic information 
  2. COVID-19 testing and results, symptoms and health-seeking behaviours 
  3. Activities and behavior in and outside the home 
  4. Internet and social media use 
  5. Perceptions and attitudes around COVID-19 
  6. COVID-19 vaccine acceptance  

Currently, the BC Mix data is used for provincial modelling projections which are reported by the provincial health officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry.
