Editor's note: This survey is not based on scientific, representative samples and is solely for KOAA purposes.

The extended tax credit started earlier this year in July, and now the final payment is scheduled to go out December 15. Some early analysis shows that it might have cut poverty by as much as 40%.

Over 30 million eligible families received the tax credit at some point in its short existence. For many, it has been an important lifeline in putting food on the table for their kids.
