Between June and December, 2021, DataHaven and the Siena College Research Institute conducted 9,139 interviews of randomly-selected residents in every Connecticut town for its Community Wellbeing Survey. The unusually large survey carries a maximum margin of error of just 1.4 percent, and was conducted through live cell phone and landline interviews and statistically weighted with oversampling in hard-to-reach areas. The survey captures trends in well-being and quality of life at the zip code level, as well as by age, race/ethnicity, disability, political party affiliation, and other factors that have influenced life in the state. The 2021 survey is the fifth such effort over the past decade by DataHaven, a non-profit data analysis group based in New Haven. It was supported by 80 public and private organizations including community foundations, municipalities, hospitals, and universities.
