Survey Highlights Concern Among Blacks, Whites Related to Pandemic

New data from the science firm Civis Analytics showcases recently released findings from its COVID-19 Impact Research, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

According to the ongoing survey for which some of the data is broken down by racial and ethnic groups, research focused on the social, economic and educational impact of COVID-19 in America.

The survey, conducted in early May, found that:

– 32 percent of employed white Americans think it is likely that they will lose their job in the next three months, compared to 45 percent of employed Black Americans.

– 43 percent of white parents of high school students report that their children’s plans for higher education have changed due to the pandemic, compared to 59 percent of Black parents.

– 92 percent of parents report that their children have a dedicated device for at-home educational activities. But only 72 percent of parents with a household income less than $50,000 report that their children have access to a laptop or desktop computer for learning.
