Household Pulse Survey: Child care disruptions


HRSA’s MCHB and CDC’s NCHS partner with the Census Bureau on the Household Pulse Survey to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. From June 7 to July 5, 2021, 17.8% of families that normally have children in child care reported they were unable to attend child care due to COVID-19. Recent data have shown a large proportion of families that are struggling financially have also lost child care during the COVID19 pandemic, including many families that are at risk of eviction or foreclosure. Recent data have also shown a large number of families are struggling to balance work and child care demands due to child care closures during the COVID19 pandemic. A smaller but significant percentage of families also report that caregivers have left the workforce because of child care closures. (author abstract)
