Join the Advisory Council for our 2018 statewide survey!

The DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey completed live, in-depth interviews with 16,219 randomly-selected adults in every town in Connecticut in 2015, producing robust local-level information not available from any other public data source on topics such as the built environment, health, housing, economic and civic vitality.

The statewide Survey will be fielded again beginning in late January 2018, with support committed from The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, Fairfield County's Community Foundation, CT Health Foundation, Yale-New Haven Health System, Trinity Health New England, Middlesex Hospital, local health departments, and dozens of other institutions and organizations throughout Connecticut. 

All public agencies, community-based organizations, philanthropic foundations, and institutions in Connecticut are invited to join the Advisory and/or Funder councils for this program. Interested parties must complete a brief form.  Please visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2018surveyadvisors to complete the registration form, or feel free to forward this note to an eligible organization in your area.

Responses are requested by noon on Tuesday, December 30 (but please feel free to contact us directly if you miss the deadline).  Based on these, we will begin to collect feedback on the program from each Advisory Council member. Please contact us with any questions.
