Over the last 18 months, Citizens’ Committee for Children has relied on a new and growing set of data to monitor the ongoing impacts of the pandemic on child and family well-being in New York. One of these sources to emerge is the Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey, an experimental survey designed to track the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on U.S. households.
In this presentation, CCC Research Associate Jack Mullan shared updated findings from the survey on the well-being of families and children in the New York Metropolitan Statistical Area, from April 2020 through July 2021. These findings covered trends and inequities in economic and food insecurity, health and mental health, housing, and education, as well as recent outcomes related to the child tax credit, child care availability, and more. Following the findings, CCC Policy staff walked through key legislative and budget priorities CCC is advancing promote equity and well-being.
