Unemployment trends and other financial constraints in 2020 and early 2021 significantly impacted Colorado households with children. Preliminary data from spring 2020 to spring 2021 indicate that between 9% and 22% of our state’s households with children reported they had little to no confidence in their ability to pay their next rent or mortgage payment. Both family economic security and stable housing are essential to child well-being. To learn more about Colorado families who faced uncertainty around their rent or mortgage payments during this time period, please visit the KIDS COUNT Data Center.
