From the introduction: "This report draws on data from the Rapid Assessment of Pandemic Impact on DevelopmentEarly Childhood (RAPID-EC) survey to present key findings and recommendations about the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on 782 Black and Black/multiracial families with babies (i.e., infants and toddlers, birth to age 3) in the United States. The RAPID-EC is an early childhood family well-being survey designed to gather essential information in a continuous manner regarding the needs, health-promoting behaviors, and well-being of children and their families during the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S. RAPID-EC has partnered with researchers and institutions across the country including the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Data for this report were collected by the RAPID-EC team at Stanford University (formerly at the University of Oregon) between April 2020 and February 2022."
