Five Connecticuts Report 2014 - Preliminary Edition

May 1, 2014 edition

The Connecticut State Data Center developed the Five Connecticuts report to highlight inequalities that exist at the town level which are often not clearly discernible at the county level. This report was originally developed in 2004 based on 2000 Census data which included data from Summary File 3, a dataset no longer included in the Decennial Census as this data is now collected by the American Community Survey (ACS). After reviewing previous methods and data sources and reviewing similar projects across the nation, the Connecticut State Data Center has adapted the Human Development Index (HDI) to develop the 2014 Five Connecticuts Report. The following data and visualization provides a preliminary version of the Five Connecticuts Report for 2014 to allow public comment to help us in developing the finalized version of this report and dataset. Included below is an interactive data viewer to provide the ability to view data at the town level and includes the ability to examine the Human Development Index (HDI), Education, Income, and Health Indexes separately by town.
