New Census Bureau survey tracks household food insecurity, income losses

The U.S. Census Bureau has developed a weekly Household Pulse Survey to provide timely statistics on families during the pandemic. Results were recently released for the first period (April 23-May 5), although the response rate was not ideal. They found that 47 percent of adults reported that an adult in their household had lost employment income since March 13. Regarding food insecurity, they found that 10 percent of adults reported not getting enough food some of the time or often, while another 32 percent got enough food but not the kinds of food needed. Other findings pertaining to mental well-being, housing, health care, and remote learning are included. #covid-19 #foodsecurity #mentalhealth #workforce
