Commissioned by the Valley Community Foundation, DataHaven collected and analyzed data about life in seven Lower Naugatuck Valley towns. Guided by an advisory committee of local stakeholders, DataHaven chose to focus specifically on “the Valley’s” changing demographics, health and basic needs, early child care, and economic and educational opportunities. A more comprehensive analysis of the region will be published in the form of the 2016 Valley Community Index in Spring 2016.
