COVID-19 Pandemic Impact Survey

COVID-19 Pandemic Impact Survey 2021-03-05T17:36:00-05:00

The unprecedented nature and rapid spread of COVID-19 has exposed critical risks to our local economy as well as our systems of health care and education.  

As we approach the 12-month mark of this prolonged crisis, United Way of Miami-Dade is conducting a Pandemic Impact Survey to measure how Miami-Dade households have been affected by the pandemic including the financial burden on families in our community. The survey aims to collect responses from a wide range of households, income levels, as well as, small business owners. Respondents will supply critical feedback to understanding COVID’s impact to date as well as help inform short/long-term recovery efforts. 

Please take the survey now and share it with your family, friends and colleagues.

Interim ALICE Report Data

This survey will augment our biennial ALICE Report which shines a light on the true number of families struggling to make ends meet. These hardworking residents, although employed, are struggling to cover basic needs like housing, child care, medical expenses, food, utilities and transportation. With 5 out of 10 households (54%) in Miami-Dade County living in, or one emergency away from, poverty, the pandemic has exacerbated an already difficult situation for ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) individuals and families.
