Household Experiences in America During the Delta Variant Outbreak

NPR, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health conducted a survey poll between August 2 and September 7, 2021 to identify the extent that the delta variant of the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States has continued to cause problems for many households, including severe financial and health impacts for households already in crisis. This report presents survey findings of the most serious problems, including finances, healthcare, racial/ethnic discrimination, education, caregiving, work, health and healthcare, and overall well-being. The poll was conducted before federal pandemic unemployment benefits ended and at the time housing eviction protections expired.
