DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey

DataHaven   (New Haven - Connecticut)

2012 - 2024


The DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey (DCWS) uses probability sampling to create highly-reliable local information that is not available from any other public data source. The DCWS traces its origins to a series of locally-based efforts conducted over the past two decades to gather information about well-being in Connecticut neighborhoods.

With guidance from an Advisory Council of 300 public and private organizations, DataHaven created a unified statewide survey shared by all cities and towns in the state.

Since 2012, quantitative and qualitative data from the DCWS have been featured in hundreds of publications about all aspects of quality of life in Connecticut, including DataHaven's Town Equity Reports and regional reports.
