CASER Published The Social Impact of COVID-19 in the United States Wave 1 Report

April 1, 2021

The Center for Applied Social and Economic Research (CASER) has published “The Social Impact of COVID-19 in the United States Wave 1 Report” based on their longitudinal study, “Life Experience and Community during COVID-19 in the United States (LECC-US),” conducted with the Center for Advanced Social Science Research at NYU. The study surveyed over 4,400 adults across the U.S. last October about the impact of the pandemic on their economic and social life, subjective well-being, perceptions and attitudes, and social participation. The report reveals that women, African Americans and Hispanics, younger people, less educated individuals, and Democrats are the most-impacted groups and sheds light on a deep socio-political divide in the United States. CASER will follow up with participants in late March to learn about their lives and attitudes towards the pandemic after the 2020 election and to further conduct in-depth analysis on the data.
