Fact Sheets

Between April 23, 2020 and July 21, 2020, the U.S. Census Bureau collected 12 weeks’ worth of data measuring the social and economic impact of COVID-19 on households. Our analysis of this data shows that women – and Black women and Latinas in particular – are too often going without adequate food and are facing housing insecurity at alarming rates. Key findings include:  

  • More than half of Black, non-Hispanic women (54.5%), Asian, non-Hispanic women (56.3%), and Latinas (63.7%) reported a loss of income since March, compared to 45.1% of white, non-Hispanic men and 46.0% of white, non-Hispanic women. 
  • More than 1 in 5 Black, non-Hispanic women (21.5%) and Latinas (21.1%) reported not having enough food in the past week, making them three times more likely than white, non-Hispanic men (7.0%) to report experiencing food scarcity. 
  • More than 2 in 5 Black, non-Hispanic women (40.8%) and Latinas (44.6%) reported facing housing insecurity, compared to 15.4% of white, non-Hispanic men.
