Through the American Community Survey, the Census provided five-year average estimates on social and economic indicators for the period of 2007-2011 for all cities and towns in the state. This analysis by Connecticut Voices summarizes key data on child and family well-being for these cities and towns, with estimates of:

Our analysis indicates where there have been statistically significant changes between the 2000 decennial Census estimates (the most recent comparison period available for all towns) and these 2007-2011 estimates. This enables us to explore how Connecticut cities and towns have changed over the past decade.
