Half of Americans Already Lost Income from Coronavirus

The COVID-19 pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on almost everyone. Measures to respond to the outbreak and ensure public safety, like stay-at-home orders and suspending travel, have resulted in lost income for many.

Today (3/25/20), just in week 1 into shutdowns of some cities, we polled 1,400 users to see whether the virus has already impacted their incomes. 42% of respondents answered “I have lost income”, while 38% answer “My income is unchanged”. Excluding those who didn’t answer, fully 50% of respondents have had their incomes reduced.  The average respondent was 24 years old.
