How Economic Insecurity in Children Changed Over the Course of the Great Recession: Fact Sheet by Lisa Dubay and Elena Zarabozo

“Given the high stakes for children living in economically insecure families, it is important to document how many children are living in such circumstances, how economic insecurity has changed over the course of the Great Recession, and which children were most affected. It is also critical to consider whether children are receiving public program benefits, how this support has changed over the course of the Great Recession, and whether these programs appear to be meeting the needs of families with children. This summary highlights key findings from a paper that examines how children’s circumstances changed between 2007 and 2010.”
