The report will include an analysis of data from our 2021 and 2022 Community Wellbeing Survey, as well as many other new data sources. Please contact us if you have suggestions on what information to feature and how to distribute the report, or if you would like to sponsor this year's publication.

Greater Hartford Community Wellbeing Index 2019

The Greater Hartford Community Wellbeing Index is the first comprehensive community indicators program for Greater Hartford, covering individual cities and neighborhoods throughout the area. The Index is a core community indicators program of DataHaven, produced with support from public and private partners throughout the region. It serves as a collaborative Community Health Needs Assessment for the towns served by many hospitals throughout the Greater Hartford area.

Published in October 2019, the report is approximately 120 pages in length, with over 80 illustrations related to well-being and economic opportunity in Greater Hartford. The report uses a combination of local, state, and federal data sources including new data analysis conducted by DataHaven and partners for the first time. The Index makes use of results from the DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey, which conducted live, in-depth interviews with over 16,000 randomly-selected adults statewide, including about 3,000 in Greater Hartford, in 2018. DataHaven has made similar reports available for all other regions of Connecticut.


Document notes and errata


  1. The preliminary final version of the 2019 report was posted to this site on 10/14/19. An updated version with a typo corrected in a mailing address on the back cover was posted 10/19. 
  2. In Figure 3.1, the inset map contains lines pointing to the Outer Ring and Inner Ring that are not the correct length, making it appear mislabeled. The GH Outer Ring and GH Inner Ring areas within the inset map in Figure 2.8 is correctly labeled. In Figure 3.1, the adjacent dot plot provides the correct life expectancy figures for these areas.
