The U.S. Census Bureau has released data on social and economic indicators for 54 mid-sized and large cities and towns in Connecticut.

Through the American Community Survey, the Census provided three-year average estimates for the period of 2008-2010 for cities and towns with populations of 20,000 or more.

CT Voices data analysis summarizes city and town data on child and family well-being for these 54 cities and towns, with estimates of people in poverty, children in poverty, median household income, people uninsured, and children uninsured. Our analysis also indicates where there have been statistically significant changes between 2005-2007 and 2008-2010 estimates of poverty and income. (Because this is the first period for which three-year health insurance coverage estimates are available, it was not possible to make comparisons over time for that indicator.)
