Abstract

This report provides evidence on the rent, mortgage, and student loan payment patterns from the second quarter of 2020, using innovative new household survey data from the Understanding America Survey (UAS), an internet panel survey of over 8,000 households fielded every two weeks and specially tailored to study the impact of the coronavirus. It provides close to real-time economic data on the rapidly evolving financial consequences of the pandemic.
