Stunning toll of ‘Slow the Spread’ — 55 percent of U.S. households with kids have lost income

Just the News:

The Census Bureau is offering a new portrait of the far-reaching economic toll of the coronavirus shutdown: more than half of American households with children have lost income since the pandemic started.

The new Household Pulse Survey released Wednesday — a day when the COVID-19 death toll in the U.S. surpassed 100,000 — found 55 percent of households that include a child younger than 18 have experienced at least one adult lose work income since the crisis began.

Compared to adults in households without children, adults in households with children expressed a lower level of assurance that they would be able to fund their June rent or mortgage, the Census Bureau added.
