The Census Bureau is seeking comment on proposed revisions to the Household Pulse Survey, which helps to inform on a range of topics related to households' experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. Proposed revisions include new questions on changes in travel and spending due to increasing prices, school meals, displacement due to natural disaster, receipt/loss of Medicaid coverage, and a question that asks certain respondents if they are not working due to coronavirus, natural disaster, or another reason. The Census Bureau is also proposing modifications to questions related to vaccine boosters, children's vaccine booster, infant formula, reasons not working, and inflation items. Several questions will be removed for Phase 3.7, including replaced children's vaccine booster items, and questions about educational catch-up activities and the receipt of antiviral/antibody treatments. Comments are due within 30 days of this notice.
