25 YEARS OF PUBLIC SERVICE
At DataHaven, our mission is to improve quality of life by collecting, interpreting and sharing public data for effective decision-making. We have served Greater New Haven and Connecticut as a nonprofit organization since 1992, working with many partners to develop reports, tools, and technical assistance programs that make information more useful to local communities.
DataHaven is a partner of the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership, a collaborative national effort by the Urban Institute in Washington, DC and approximately 40 local partners to further the development and use of neighborhood information systems in local policymaking and community building. We are also involved in many initiatives to further the usability of high-quality data at a local and statewide level.
DataHaven (Regional Data Cooperative) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and is registered as a Public Charity with the State of Connecticut. We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Our Programs, Services, and Staff
Our largest current program is the DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey, which produces information on quality of life, public health, economic development, and civic vitality for over 100 partners throughout Connecticut and sections of nearby states. Survey results and new reports, including an updated and significantly expanded Community Index, were released throughout 2015-2017 and were expanded further in 2018-2019.
Some of our other recent work includes developing comprehensive community indicators within Fairfield County, Greater Hartford, and Greater New Haven, evaluating the livability for older adults in Connecticut, measuring neighborhood income inequality in Connecticut, and publishing special data-driven reports on civic health, early childhood education, the impact of immigration, how transportation influences job access, and other topics at the statewide, regional, and local levels.
