UCLA: UCLA-led Research Finds Americans Suffering Psychological Distress Over Pandemic-Related Job Loss

UCLA: UCLA-led Research Finds Americans Suffering Psychological Distress Over Pandemic-Related Job Loss. “With data from the national population-based Health, Ethnicity, and Pandemic (HEAP) Study, in-depth analyses indicated that, among U.S. adults who were working before the COVID-19 pandemic, negative employment changes, including pay cuts, temporary job loss, and permanent job loss, were associated with higher psychological distress. Stratified analyses by race further revealed the effects of negative employment changes on psychological distress were greatest among Asian Americans and Black Americans.”
