Household Pulse Charts

For reference, I used the data from Household Pulse Surveys by the Census Bureau to create this series of charts.

This is week #12. The collection of the data ran between July 16, 2020 to July 21, 2020.

Here are some additional charts from the survey data.

62.173 million people are not retired and received no pay. 4.293 million said they did not want to work. 

Those with no pay, but not retired, bottomed on June 23 at 55.780 million. 

Some people who are retired still want to work at least some hours.

87.333 million people expect an income loss in the next four weeks. Income loss is by household, not individually.

Clock Ran Out 

As noted on Sunday, the Clock Just Ran Out on $600 in Weekly Unemployment Benefits.

Roughly 130 million people are receiving some form of pandemic aid. 

Those with little or no pay will get hammered this week.

“So Far Apart on Covid Deal That We Don’t Really Care”

These are huge numbers, especially the 62 million who received no pay at all.

Nonetheless, Trump says “We are So Far Apart on a Covid Deal That We Don’t Really Care”
