This index facilitates access to data crosstabs from the DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey (DCWS). This large survey program has completed 35,000 live, in-depth interviews with randomly-selected adults in every Connecticut town in 2015 and 2018, so results are available for a large number of regions, towns, and neighborhoods. A special statewide "COVID-19 Response Wave" of the DCWS was completed in August 2020 (see here), and in the Greater New Haven region, the DCWS was also completed in 2012 (see here). As described in the crosstab methodology page, to ensure representativeness, all survey estimates that we create are weighted by age, race, gender, and geography in proportion to U.S. Census Bureau data from each region or town.
Please browse the index of regions and individual towns/cities below. You will also find a summary of survey data for many towns in our Town Equity Reports, available for all 169 towns in Connecticut. Contact us with questions regarding data access; much more granular estimates for specific areas or demographic groups are often available on request.

In many cases, data collected from residents of smaller towns in Connecticut can be merged with data from similar and/or surrounding towns in order to produce reliable estimates about economic and social well-being in those communities.
