Research Response to COVID-19

Socioeconomic Impact of COVID-19 Survey

COVID-19 has dramatically shifted the world, and applying lessons learned during the pandemic will be critical as we not only rebuild our economy but make it more equitable, too. In response to the pandemic, SPI administered the Socioeconomic Impacts of COVID-19 survey in both the United States and Israel. Multiple waves of each survey were administered between Spring 2020 and Spring 2021.

SPI released a series of reports from the U.S. survey highlighting the impact of COVID-19 on housing, employment, and children and families, plus an assessment of public benefits.
