This fact sheet summarizes Census estimates for some key child and family well-being measures in 54 cities and towns in Connecticut.  Through the American Community Survey, the Census provided three-year average estimates on social and economic indicators for the period of 2010-2012 for cities and towns in the state with populations of 20,000 or more.  This analysis by CT Voices summarizes town-level estimates of:

  • people in poverty
  • children in poverty
  • median household income
  • people uninsured, and
  • children uninsured.

Our analysis indicates where there have been statistically significant changes in town estimates of poverty and income between the periods of 2007-2009 and 2010-2012. (Because there are no health insurance coverage estimates for 2007-2009 in this Census survey, it is not possible to make comparisons over time for that indicator.)
