To get a pulse on how Americans are feeling, u003cem>Fortuneu003c/em> analyzed data from more 30 surveys conducted since the onset of the crisis by Civis Analytics. u003c/p> u003cp>We found that Americans are slightly more optimistic now than last spring, but they're still down in the dumps. Even as vaccines have begun to roll out, concerns over the virus remain high. In December, 53% of U.S. adults said they're very concerned about COVID-19. That's barely down from April 2020—the peak of shutdowns—when 57% shared that sentiment. Among the economic lesson of 2020 is that fearful consumers means less economic activity. Simply put: We can't fully recover unless the virus and those fears are eased. u003c/p> u003cfigure class="wp-block-image size-large">u003cimg data-src="https://content.fortune.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/PG0oC-how-concerned-americans-are-about-the-pandemic-s-impact-on-their-job-security-1.png?w=1024" alt="" class="lazyload wp-image-2940100"/>u003c/figure> u003cp>When it comes to the workforce, in the months of March and April, the country lost 22.2 million jobs. But as states began to reopen, the country saw 12.5 million jobs return between May and November. However, that initial recovery hasn't exactly set many minds at ease. In April, 32% of American workers told Civis Analytics they were very concerned about losing their job. In December, that number was 28%. u003c/p> u003cp>What does this mean for business? For one, a fearful employee could be less willing to take risks. That might mean passing on work projects that come with big potential for failure. On the flip side, those big bets often turn into big payoffs that move companies bottom lines. u003c/p> u003cfigure class="wp-block-image size-large">u003cimg data-src="https://content.fortune.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/mQCRE-how-concerned-americans-are-about-the-pandemic-s-impact-on-their-local-economy-1-1.png?w=1024" alt="" class="lazyload wp-image-2940098"/>u003c/figure> u003cp>Among U.S. adults, 56% in December say they're still very concerned about their local economy.
