Michigan COVID-19 Recovery Surveillance Study (MI CReSS)

MI-CRESS LogoThe Michigan COVID-19 Recovery Surveillance Study (MI CReSS) is a joint project between the University of Michigan School of Public Health and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).

Study Goals

  • Conduct public health surveillance to learn about Michiganders’ experiences with COVID-19 using a representative sample of confirmed cases within
    the state.
  • Document inequities in the impact of COVID-19 illness on communities throughout the state.

Study Design

We draw sequential probability samples of COVID-19 cases from the Michigan Disease Surveillance System. The samples consist of noninstitutionalized adults from Michigan with COVID-19 diagnosis who were alive at the time of the study. Responses are weighted to be representative of adults with COVID-19 diagnosis during the designated timeframe who met our inclusion criteria.
