Around 60 percent of U.S. households with children report serious financial problems, job or wage losses during the pandemic

The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health partnered with National Public Radio (NPR) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to poll U.S. households with children regarding the impact of the pandemic (conducted July 1 – August 3, 2020). They found that 61 percent of households with children report facing serious financial problems. Higher shares of Latinx and Black households with children reported serious financial problems (86 percent and 66 percent, respectively) as compared to white households with children (51 percent). Of all U.S. households with children, 60 percent have had at least one household member lose their job or had hours/wages reduced during the pandemic. #covid-19 #racialequity
