Keeping Track of Child and Family Well-being Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic


November 17, 2020

Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, reliable and up-to-date data have proven an invaluable, if sometimes elusive, source for identifying urgent needs and delivering resources across the country. One of these data sources that recently emerged 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 shares findings on the well-being of families and children in the New York Metropolitan Statistical Area from the first phase of the survey, spanning from April 23 to July 21, 2020.
