A new survey suggests more than 60 percent of Americans have lost income amid the pandemic and recession. Those seeking more education are looking online.  These results are the second weekly batch in a multiweek longitudinal study. The share of respondents who have lost income is up 15 percentage points from the previous week’s results. Strada’s data suggest that degrees and credentials are not insulating Americans from the economic effects of the pandemic. Two-thirds of associate or vocational degree holders and 63 percent of bachelor’s degree holders reported lost income, compared to only 54 percent of participants with some college experience but no degree.
