Starting in March, 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic has introduced extraordinary social and economic changes for American households. Since its rapid launch in April, 2020, the Household Pulse Survey has collected near real-time data on the experiences of American households as the coronavirus pandemic prompted business and school closures, and widespread stay-at-home orders. These data are released every two weeks, guiding the response and recovery from the pandemic. Data produced by the Household Pulse Survey are designed to inform on a range of topics related to households’ experiences during the Covid-19 pandemic. Topics to date have included employment, facility to telework, travel patterns, income loss, spending patterns, food and housing security, access to benefits, mental health and access to care, intent to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and educational disruption (K-12 and post-secondary). The requested revision, if approved by OMB, will add previously approved items to the Phase 3.6 questionnaire.
