At DataHaven, our mission is to empower people to create thriving communities by collecting and ensuring access to data on well-being, equity, and quality of life. We have served Connecticut as a nonprofit organization since 1992, working with many partners to develop reports, tools, and technical assistance programs that make information more useful to local communities.

National Neighborhood Indicators PartnershipDataHaven is a partner of the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership, a learning network, coordinated by the Urban Institute, of independent organizations in 30 cities that share a mission to ensure all communities have access to data and the skills to use information to advance equity and well-being across neighborhoods. We are also involved in initiatives to further the use of high-quality data at a local and statewide level throughout Connecticut.

DataHaven (legal name: Regional Data Cooperative for Greater New Haven Inc) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and is registered as a Public Charity with the State of Connecticut.

Our Programs, Services, and Staff

Our largest program is the DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey, which produces information on quality of life, public health, economic development, and civic vitality for over 100 partners throughout Connecticut and sections of nearby states. Related to this program, reports covering the entire state, including the Community Index and Connecticut Town Equity Reports, have been released annually throughout the past several years. These reports include data from our survey, plus information from over 100 other federal, state, and local data sources that we regularly work with.

Some of our other recent work includes reports on the 2020 Census, the status of women and girls in Connecticut, evaluating the livability for older adults in Connecticut, measuring neighborhood income inequality, and publishing special data-driven reports on COVID-19 impacts, affordable housing, civic health, broadband access, early childhood education, the impact of immigration, how transportation influences job access, and other topics at the statewide, regional, and local levels.
