The pandemic had substantial effects on the economy and caused widespread instability both across markets and for individuals and families. Population scientists are squarely engaged in the discussion, studying the short-and long-term implications of economic instability on the health, development, and wellbeing of individuals, families, and communities.
The Population Association of America is pleased to sponsor this virtual briefing, “Assessing COVID Economic Relief: What Worked, What’s Next?,” featuring a panel of experts who will present findings illuminating how certain policies and programs, such as cash transfers and child tax credits, have affected the post-pandemic economy and the labor force. The briefing will also address what questions still remain as the nation recovers.
