New research published in the Journal of Immigrant and Minority Health explores pandemic-related hardships among families with young children by race, ethnicity, and nativity. The study reveals the disproportionate harm of the pandemic on immigrant and Latino families, finding that increases in household food insecurity and rental arrears were greater in families with Latina or immigrant mothers than in other families. The study finds, moreover, that housing instability is associated with negative health and developmental outcomes for young children. The authors argue that policymakers should do more to prioritize housing solutions for families of young children with immigrant mothers. Access the study here.
