PRIVATT is an interdisciplinary research project comprising three elements: an online survey; a social media sentiment analysis, and a socio-legal analysis of technological privacy impacts.
Our national online survey aims to collect data relevant to privacy attitudes in Ireland. A pilot was previously carried out to perfect the final version of the survey. The online survey is anonymous and has three main parts. The first part aims to collect demographic information. The second part aims to build a general privacy profile of the respondent on the basis of state of the art privacy questionnaires. The third part aims to look at the attitudes toward privacy in times of COVID19. In this context, questions about the HSE COVID tracker application also arise.
Sentiment analysis is performed on public Twitter data. We aim to compare the results of the sentiment analysis with the results of the analysis performed on the data collected via the survey.
