Statewide average for Tennessee: 50% of parents/caregivers of children under 9 in TN report either no difficulty paying for usual household expenses or report access to sufficient social supports (WIC, SNAP, TennCare, food pantries, etc.)
Zogby Analytics was commissioned by TQEE to conduct a new survey of 2,507 Tennessee parents with a child under age 9. The survey is large-scale, new (administered June 23, 2022 through August 1, 2022), and has a sampling frame that matches the Tennessee demographics (race, age, family size) for households with a child under age 9, labor market conditions in Tennessee (earnings, sector of work), and regional populations. Based on a confidence interval of 95 percent, the margin of error for the 2,507 surveys is +/- 2.0 percentage points. The regional analysis is based on regional oversampling.
Parent survey questions and resultant skip logic for this indicator were adapted from the Census Pulse survey:
Northeast TN includes the following counties: Carter, Cocke, Greene, Hamblen, Hancock, Hawkins, Johnson, Sullivan, Unicoi and Washington
West TN includes the following counties: Decatur, Dyer, Hardeman, Haywood, Hardin, Lake, Madison, McNairy and Weakley
