Statewide Survey Launch Event & February Deadline

  • This past week, we brought together more than 60 of our funders -- including foundations, municipalities, United Ways, councils of government, hospitals, universities, & more -- to launch the third wave of our statewide Community Wellbeing Survey. In addition to the participating partners who made this event a huge success, we are also grateful for the comments we received from over 100 public agencies and non-profits who signed up for our Advisory Committee, and we will be using this feedback to add new questions to the survey questionnaire.
  • Although about 15,000 randomly-selected adults in every Connecticut town will participate in the live, in-depth interviews when the survey is repeated beginning later this month, our ability to produce the most statistically-useful estimates for each partner sometimes requires a modest amount of additional funding to conduct more interviews within their town(s) or service region of interest. If any additional public agencies or organizations would like us to guarantee a certain level of interviews within a targeted town, zip code, or defined geographic area, we would appreciate hearing from them by February 19th or earlier.
