A study published by the University of California, Los Angeles’s Center for Health Policy Research finds that Californians experiencing housing instability during the pandemic were twice as likely as those not experiencing housing instability not to have health insurance and were also more likely to delay needed care. The study also finds that one in 10 Californians struggled with housing costs due to impacts related to the COVID-19 pandemic and that renters were disproportionately impacted by housing affordability issues during the pandemic. Black and Latinx people, non-citizens, and transgender people were more likely to report housing struggles, according to the research. Overall, the findings demonstrate that stable housing influences outcomes across sectors, particularly health outcomes. Read an article about the study here.
