Covid-19’s Impact on Wyoming Women

Health is vital to economic self-sufficiency.

For many Wyoming Women, achieving or maintaining economic self-sufficiency has been much more difficult as they continue to face layoffs, school closures and the numerous other impacts of COVID-19.

The Impacts of COVID-19 on Wyoming Women Data Sheet shows results from a survey conducted by the Wyoming Survey & Analysis Center (WYSAC) and funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

The survey: 

  • was conducted between June 16th and June 22nd, 2020 among a randomly selected sample of Wyoming residents who are members of WYSAC’s WyoSpeaks panel.
  • Covers a broad range of COVID-19 impacts.
  • Is part of a larger conversation about women’s participation in the workforce, the importance of self-sufficient wages, and how the state can benefit as a whole. 

Additional data on the impact of COVID-19 on Wyoming Women is coming soon!
