A new study finds that more than a year into the pandemic, housing insecurity remains high among Latino and Black households with children. The study reviews data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey to document trends in housing during the pandemic. According to the study, roughly 40% of Black and Latino households with children who rent or have a mortgage reported housing insecurity, compared to 15% of white households with children.
The study also finds that housing insecurity is particularly acute for families with low incomes. Roughly half low-income Black and Latino households with children, and one third of low-income white households with children, reported little or no confidence in their ability to make their next mortgage or rent payment.
