Definition: Estimated percentage of adults with caregiving responsibilities for children ages 0-17 for whom the experience of helping their children with schoolwork is both positive and stressful, by household income level (e.g., in Wave 1 (Nov. 9 – Dec. 11, 2020), 21.7% of California caregivers living in households with annual incomes below $30,000 had positive but stressful experiences helping their children with schoolwork).
Data Source: Family Experiences During the COVID-19 Pandemic. (Dec. 2020). Questionnaire: American Academy of Pediatrics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Prevent Child Abuse America & Tufts Medical Center; California oversample: Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health & California Essentials for Childhood Initiative (California Dept. of Public Health, Injury and Violence Prevention Branch & California Dept. of Social Services, Office of Child Abuse Prevention).
Footnote: This indicator reports on experiences about which caregivers somewhat or strongly agree with both of the following statements: (i) Helping my child(ren) with their education, including remote schoolwork, has been a positive experience, and/or has brought us closer; (ii) Helping my child(ren) with their education, including remote schoolwork, has been very stressful, and/or has resulted in increased tension at home. These data are subject to both sampling and nonsampling error. The annotation [!] indicates that the margin of error for the estimate is between 5 and 10 percentage points.
