U.S. Census Bureau analysis of their Household Pulse Survey (June 4-9) found that adults in households with children have been hit hard financially amid COVID-19. Both food insufficiency and late housing payments were particularly prevalent among adults in households with children. They found that adults in households with children more often reported a late or deferred housing payment in May 2020, including rates as high as one-in-four among renter households. Authors estimated that 3.9 million children live in households experiencing pandemic-induced food insufficiency, and almost 1.3 million children live in households experiencing both pandemic-induced food insufficiency and housing insecurities. #foodsecurity #covid-19
