DataHaven's Town Equity Reports use new approaches to disaggregate data for CT towns
DataHaven has published a new series of reports for all 169 Connecticut towns. Filled with data visualizations and maps, these reports use new methods to analyze raw data from the 2020 Census, American Community Survey microdata files, DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey, and other federal and state sources to create relevant town-level information by demographic group like race/ethnicity that was not previously available from any public databases.
The reports will inform local-level efforts to improve community well-being and racial equity. Please download and help us share the report for your town!
This series of DataHaven reports, using 2020 Census data, visualizes and discusses neighborhood-level demographic changes within our state's larger communities since the last census in 2010.
After the U.S. Census Bureau released 2020 redistricting data on August 12, DataHaven immediately published a public analysis of the data, and our analyses and staff commentary were featured widely on the front pages of most Connecticut newspapers.
Overdose Data to Action Report
DataHaven recently published this report, which summarizes data trends related to overdose, substance use, harm prevention, and related metrics. It also provides recommendations to inform programs developed by the Quinnipiack Valley Health District (QVHD) and New Haven Health Department’s (NHHD) joint effort to reduce overdoses through the Overdose Data to Action (OD2A) grant administered through the Connecticut Department of Public Health (CTDPH) via the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Why "Asian-American" data isn't enough
Watch the full op-ed here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahJZcp4JebU). DataHaven summer intern Sam Ahn created a video op-od explaining why the lack of disaggregation of Asian-American data is masking important indicators among different ethnic groups.
