Inflation is the biggest problem for American families, the Seventh Annual American Family Survey revealed on Tuesday. New research reveals that ethnic polarization lags far behind.
Another important issue is Americans ‘trust in the institution of marriage, according to an annual survey conducted by Bergham Young University and Desert News’ Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy. Polster’s Yugo conducted the survey in the summer of 2021.
According to Survey“Nothing but inflation” worries people about the economy and their families. ” The survey found that 39% of the population is “concerned about inflation”, while none of the other factors designated by the polyesters – lack of government support, national debt, or unemployment – by 30%. Pulled out
Republicans are the most worried, according to the poll, with 52 percent in the poll, while Democrats are at 29 percent, a statistic that puts the other three economic factors at the top of the list.
Christopher F. Corpotz, co-director of the BYU’s Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy, said the question of race in the United States, and how racial history is taught in schools, is a divisive one.
“Democrats and Republicans see the world differently when it comes to the racial challenges facing this country,” Mr. Carpotz told the Washington Times. “They have different priorities on how schools deal with these challenges. And whether or not schools should spend more time on race issues, but the kind of lessons that schools teach about race.”
He said that when members of both parties in the survey agreed that “progress has been made in racial equality over time”, differences have arisen in the curriculum in schools.
Recent public debates have focused on key race theory and the controversial 1619 project. Stand That slavery should be the basic lens through which American history is examined.
“I don’t know how you tell a story about development without saying that, in the past the situation was worse than it is today,” Mr Carpotz said.
The survey found that the health of marriages and spouses remains a concern during the epidemic year.
“I think we’re seeing a lot of signs that families are valuable institutions in modern society, and they still exist,” Mr Carpotz announced.
“There is consistent consistency in both American and institutional assessments of American marriage,” the survey summary said.
At the same time, the report notes, “an indication that people are less likely to say that their own marriage has become stronger during the coup, perhaps due to the pressure of that period. But in general, people Believes that marriages are going well.
Mr Carpotz said a potential source of stress for families this year would be the elimination of COVID-related aid payments, which have helped keep many families out of the financial crisis under the Trump and Biden administrations.
“The group most likely to be challenged is single parents with children,” he added. “This is a group that can also suffer from an economic crisis through an epidemic.”
Mr Carpotz turned to a key finding of the report: The COVID-19 epidemic had far-reaching effects on the nation’s families.
The epidemic affected different families in different ways, he said. “We find that Spanish families, one in five, say they know someone in their family. [or] An extended family member who died of COVID. That’s double the rate we see in white families.
