The Greater Hartford Community Wellbeing Index is the first comprehensive community indicators program for Greater Hartford, covering individual cities and neighborhoods throughout the area. The Index is a core community indicators program of DataHaven, produced with support from public and private partners throughout the region. It serves as a collaborative Community Health Needs Assessment for the towns served by many hospitals throughout the Greater Hartford area.
Published in October 2019, the report is approximately 120 pages in length, with over 80 illustrations related to well-being and economic opportunity in Greater Hartford. The report uses a combination of local, state, and federal data sources including new data analysis conducted by DataHaven and partners for the first time. The Index makes use of results from the DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey, which conducted live, in-depth interviews with over 16,000 randomly-selected adults statewide, including about 3,000 in Greater Hartford, in 2018. DataHaven has made similar reports available for all other regions of Connecticut.
