Immense strain in lockdown for parents in Germany

A new analysis of the strain perceived by the working population in Germany shows very high values for the recent survey wave in January: 40% of the respondents report “high” or “extreme” strain. Even higher is the perceived strain for parents (49%) and especially mothers (54%). Moreover, the study shows how inequal the emotional strain is distributed, as low-income respondents report much higher strain.
