A comparison of negative financial events experienced by carers and non-carers following onset of the Great Recession

Objectives and Methods: This study compares carers and non-carers as regards experiences of harmful financial events during and immediately after the Great Recession. Findings: Carer status was associated with experiencing more negative financial events since the Great Recession began, even after controlling for covariates in a negative binomial regression. Carers had higher odds of reporting: job loss; moving in with family and friends to save money; and selling possessions to make ends meet. Conclusions: Compared to non-carers, carers were more likely to experience adverse financial events during and following the Great Recession.
