Definition: Estimated percentage of adults with caregiving responsibilities for children ages 0-17, by level of concern about their children's safety after the rollback of masking and other pandemic-related public health measures (e.g., in Wave 4 (Jun. 3 – Jun. 29, 2022), 14.4% of California caregivers were extremely concerned about their children's safety following relaxed public health measures).
Data Source: Family Experiences During the COVID-19 Pandemic. (Jun. 2022). 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: The 'moderately concerned' category reflects caregivers who are somewhat concerned or moderately concerned about their children's safety. These data are subject to both sampling and nonsampling error. The notation S refers to estimates that have been suppressed because the margin of error is 10 percentage points or greater. The annotation [!] indicates that the estimate’s margin of error is at least 5 percentage points but less than 10 percentage points.
