Abstract

This study addressed the need for research examining impacts of the Coronavirus-19 (COVID) pandemic on Latinx adolescents’ adjustment. Survey data for a probability sample of 547 Latinx adolescents (Mage = 13.71, SD = 0.86; 55.2% female) were collected from 2018 to 2021, including two times both prior to, and during, COVID. Independent variables assessed COVID-related household hospitalization, job/income loss, and adolescents’ increased childcare responsibility. Structural Equation Model results indicated that COVID-related increases in adolescent childcare responsibility were associated with increased internalizing and externalizing symptoms and declines in school performance. COVID hospitalization and job/income loss were associated indirectly, through childcare responsibilities, to worse adolescent outcomes. Family adversities may harm adolescents’ adjustment by burdening adolescents with responsibilities such caring for children.

As described earlier, data coded as “T1” for the present study were drawn from two sources: the main sample’s second assessment and the lagged sample’s first assessment for the [blinded name] study. Some missing data due to survey nonresponse exist as early as the present study’s T1 because 19.5% of main sample participants had been lost to attrition before their second assessment. (Attrition for the main sample’s second assessment was higher than at other time points likely because it was at this time that the school district requested that the [blinded name] study no longer be conducted through schools).
