The results of this study suggest notable shifts in experiences of discrimination and social isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, the findings indicate that Black young adults experienced increases in discrimination, which exacerbated Black–White racial disparities in social isolation. Determining the degree to which the reported changes are enduring, evident in other demographic groups, and of longer term developmental and public health significance will be important next steps to inform a continuing pandemic response, and responses to future societal-level stressful events.

Previous research has shown a substantial increase in income inequality between rural and urban China as well as across and within regions in China during its growth process.

Question What is the association between the 80% cut in funding for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) navigator program between 2017 and 2019 and private sector advertising in the ACA individual health insurance marketplace?

Meaning These findings suggest cuts to funding for the ACA navigator program were not associated with changes in the number of advertisements aired by health insurance companies or other private sector sponsors; the findings can inform policy debates about the extent to which the private sector adjusts in response to changes in government outreach.
