2018 Five Connecticuts Data Crosstabs - DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey

This crosstab of results from the 2018 DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey contains weighted estimates for Connecticut, as well as disaggregations for each of the Five Connecticuts.

The survey conducted in-depth interviews with over 16,000 randomly-selected adults living in every town and city throughout Connecticut.

he Five Connecticuts are a system used to classify individual towns into one of five categories (Wealthy, Suburban, Rural, Urban Periphery, and Urban Core) based on the median household income, population density, and poverty rate of each town as of the most recent Census data.  In many cases, survey estimates for the population of any individual town in Connecticut will be similar to other towns within its Five Connecticuts grouping.

The original classification system for the Five Connecticuts was developed in: Levy, Don, Orlando Rodriguez, and Wayne Villemez. 2004. The Changing Demographics of Connecticut - 1990 to 2000. Part 2: The Five Connecticuts. Storrs, Connecticut: University of Connecticut, The Connecticut State Data Center, Series, no. OP 2004-01.  For the 2015 Community Wellbeing Survey, the classification system was updated for DataHaven by Don Levy using 2010 Census data. The 2018 Community Wellbeing Survey uses the same classification system.

The full classification is availalble on request. To cite our updated classification system, please use "Levy, Don and DataHaven. (2015): Five Connecticuts 2010 Update. Produced for Siena College Research Institute and DataHaven based on the original method of assigning designations used in Levy, Don, Orlando Rodriguez, and Wayne Villemez. 2004.
