Greater New Haven Community Index 2019

The Greater New Haven Community Index 2019 is an update and expansion of DataHaven's popular 2013 and 2016 Index reports, featuring several new content areas. Published in September 2019, the report is approximately 120 pages in length, with over 80 illustrations related to well-being and economic opportunity in the Greater New Haven area.

The report uses a combination of local, state, and federal data sources including new data analysis conducted by DataHaven and partners for the first time. Like the previous two editions of the report, the Index makes use of results from the DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey, which conducted live, in-depth interviews with over 16,000 randomly-selected adults statewide, including 1,000 in the city of New Haven, in 2018. DataHaven has made similar reports available for all other regions of Connecticut.

Greater New Haven Community Index 2013

In October 2013, DataHaven's 86-page report (click here to download PDF) illustrated the opportunities and challenges that face the metropolitan area where Greater New Haven residents live, work, and play. The report contains numerous maps and infographics about economic and social issues in the region.

The health chapter of this report is a comprehensive assessment benefiting from a collaborative approach led by the Partnership for a Healthier Greater New Haven — a coalition of public health, health care, government, and civic leaders, including Yale New Haven Hospital. DataHaven and the Community Alliance for Research and Engagement (CARE) at Yale School of Public Health formed a scientific partnership to develop and simultaneously conduct the DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey and CARE New Haven Health Survey, which collectively represent the largest and most comprehensive surveys ever conducted in our region.
