This is the third in our series of reports on the impact of the pandemic on people and households. This week’s findings cover the period 3-13 April, and show that:
- Adults continue to report being very/somewhat worried about the effect of the pandemic (84.8%). The most common concern was their ability to make plans with over half (52.5%) saying this had been affected. This was followed by the effect on their well-being, (the most mentioned concern last week)
- Of adults with a dependent child, 70.9% said they had homeschooled their child or children in the past seven days. Of those, over half (52%) agreed they were confident in their ability to homeschool. A quarter (26%), however, were less confident about this. Moreover, 41.6% said homeschooling was having a negative effect on their job, 29.8% said it was adversely affecting their well-being, and 50.2% said it was having a negative effect on children’s well-being.
