The COVID-19 pandemic is having tough economic impacts on Arizonans, with fewer work hours as well as job losses and furloughs, according to a new poll by Arizona State University.

About 80% of the 813 respondents said they are “very concerned” or “concerned” about both the economy and the health of their loved ones and essential workers, according to the poll that was conducted by the Morrison Institute for Public Policy at ASU in conjunction with The Arizona Republic.

“These data points are a snapshot in time,” said Andrea Whitsett, director of the institute, which is a nonpartisan center that researches policy issues such as education, health and safety.

The “Perceptions of the Pandemic and Its Effects” poll was taken April 24 to May 7, before the state’s “soft” reopening on May 8. More surveys will be needed to fully see the impact of the pandemic, Whitsett said.

“This is a rapidly evolving situation,” she said in a webinar that showed the results.
