25 YEARS OF PUBLIC SERVICE
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 Greater New Haven and 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.
DataHaven is a partner of the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership, a collaborative national effort by the Urban Institute in Washington, DC and approximately 40 local partners to further the development and use of neighborhood information systems in local policymaking and community building. We are also involved in many initiatives to further the use of high-quality data at a local and statewide level.
DataHaven (Regional Data Cooperative) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and is registered as a Public Charity with the State of Connecticut. We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Our Programs, Services, and Staff
Our largest current 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. Survey results and new reports covering the entire state, including a significantly expanded Community Index, were released throughout the past several years.
Some of our other recent work includes reports on the status of women and girls, 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, early childhood education, the impact of immigration, how transportation influences job access, and other topics at the statewide, regional, and local levels.
