In addition to providing direct assistance to hundreds of non-profit organizations and agencies, for over a decade, DataHaven staff have worked with area high schools, universities, employers, non-profit associations, philanthropic funders, and government agencies to provide training on the use of data in Connecticut.
Topics often covered in our Connecticut Data Workshops include:
- The importance of neighborhood-level data
- Accessing neighborhood-level data and community or town profile information through DataHaven
- The DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey, believed to be the largest neighborhood-level well-being and quality of life survey in the United States
- Deciding what data to use
- Visualizing data
- Designing surveys or focus groups
- Gathering and using U.S. Census data
- Finding data from Connecticut state agencies, such as the Department of Public Health, Connecticut Department of Labor, and State Department of Education
- Writing grants
Depending on staff availability, as well as the location and nature of the workshop, these may require funding support or may be offered as part of our existing free technical assistance program.
