ABSTRACT

Early Readout on the Economic Effects of the COVID-19 Crisis: Immigrant Women Have the Highest Unemployment   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic and efforts to slow its spread through social distancing, lockdowns, and other measures have led to historically high U.S. unemployment rates, which at their peak in April 2020 far surpassed those seen during the recession of 2008-09. More than half a year after the first measures to combat the public-health crisis were taken in mid-March 2020, some groups of Americans faced much higher unemployment than others, with immigrant women among those hit hardest."
