A major survey of 3,000 Ile-de-France residents is learning the first lessons from the pandemic. Telework and telemedicine are acclaimed while public transport may be neglected.

How did Ile-de-France residents experience confinement? What about deconfinement? How do they envisage "life after" in the Region most affected by the epidemic? So many questions which were the subject of a vast study launched by the Paris Region Institute *, and unveiled today in the JDD. Some 60 questions were asked of more than 3,000 inhabitants; the investigation began on May 5 in full containment, and ended on May 19, eight days after the start of deconfinement **. "The aim of this study is to anticipate possible changes in behavior among Ile-de-France residents, starting today and beyond," said Fouad Awada, director general of the Institut Paris Région. Here are the first lessons.

The general perception of withdrawal into self

This is the first surprise of this survey: 83% of Ile-de-France residents declare having "experienced confinement", including 19% "very well". Residents who found this unprecedented experience positive are mainly among teleworkers (88%) and two-person households (86%). "Some of these figures go against conventional wisdom, they twist the neck to a vision of the Ile-de-France sometimes caricatured," decrypts Martin Omhovère, director of the habitat and society department at the Paris Region Institute.

"A third of Ile-de-France residents live in individual houses", recalls the geographer and town planner. The fact remains that the 17% who have experienced confinement badly, including 4% very badly, live "in small apartments, without balcony or garden, with cherubs less than 2 years old," specifies Fouad Awada.

Could coronavirus have been circulating in Europe in late 2019, many weeks before it was officially recognised and declared a threat there? That is the suggestion being made after a French doctor has revealed that he treated a patient in Paris with all of the symptoms of coronavirus just after Christmas.

Envy for that matter, a sham

The survey confirms that 11% of Ile-de-France residents stayed outside their main residence during confinement. It is mainly the 18-24 year olds (20%) who left. "Parisian housing is smaller and overcrowded," notes the CEO. But beware again of the caricature, warns Martin Omhovère: "The agglomeration counts a lot of students and young working people living alone who return home in the provinces as soon as there is an extended weekend, a fortiori during confinement . "

Likewise, the geographer wishes to put into perspective the figure of 31% of Ile-de-France residents who would like to move: "This percentage is exactly the same as in previous years! Quite simply because the population is much younger here than elsewhere in France, many will continue their residential journey, then later return to their region of origin. "

Telework accepted on a long-term basis

During confinement, 60% of working people in Ile-de-France had an unchanged professional activity, 7% were on short-time working. Telework has become the rule for 39% of working people, compared to 3% in 2018-2019. "The experience has been lived rather positively, it should continue, in lesser proportions certainly, but lastingly," said Fouad Awada, who adds that "it will have an impact on commercial real estate".

Revolution in travel

One in six Ile-de-France residents plans to change their mobility behavior after the epidemic. Problem: 24% of public transport users, or almost a quarter, plan to use them less. "It's considerable!" Exclaims the boss of the Institut Paris Région. This means that the sharing of public space on the surface, between cars, bikes and pedestrians, will become an even more significant issue. " The desire for change is also important among cyclists (22%) - who plan to use their bikes more - and pedestrians (12%).

As for motorists and drivers of motorized two-wheelers, only 7.5% and 10% respectively want to change.

Purchasing habits transformed

Almost a third of respondents (28%) had products purchased on e-commerce sites delivered to their homes during confinement. And 37% used "more than before" this type of consumption. Result: 60% of Ile-de-France residents say they will change their buying habits - 39% "sustainably", 22% "temporarily" - once the epidemic has passed. Among these, nine out of ten now intend to favor local food products and manufactured products "made in France". "We are in the process of entering a new era," says Fouad Awada.

As the coronavirus pandemic brings the global economy to an astonishing halt, the world’s most vulnerable countries are suffering intensifying harm. Businesses faced with the disappearance of sales are laying off workers. Households short of income are skimping on food.

Desires for outdoor leisure

At the time of deconfinement, 70% of residents plan to change at least one of their habits in terms of leisure, sports or cultural activities. Among those that Ile-de-France residents wish to practice "more than before": walking in a natural environment (33%), outdoor sports (24%), frequenting parks and gardens (21%), walking in an urban environment (20%). "These expectations will have to be taken into consideration in the planning of future districts and especially in the adaptation of the existing city", observes Martin Omhovère.

Conversely, the activities that respondents say they want to practice "less than before" are: shopping (29%), frequenting fairs and shows (21%), that of bars and restaurants (20%), that of cinemas and indoor theaters (17%).

Telemedicine in full swing

The use of medical teleconsultation is considered by 41% of respondents, excluding confinement. Three-quarters of those who have experienced it say they are ready to repeat the experience. The CEO of the Paris Region Institute mentions a "meteoric rise" and a "decisive promise for doctors".

Disrupted priorities

When asked "what should be the priorities for action by the public authorities after confinement?", The people of Ile-de-France answer (three possible answers): the health system (31%), the relocation of industrial activities in France (13%), purchasing power (9%), climate change (9%), the fight against unemployment (8%) and poverty (7%). Proof that the crisis has changed not only habits and behavior, but also expectations.
