Measuring the Impact of COVID-19

DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey reveals how daily experiences
differ by age, gender, race and geographic area.

This comprehensive dataset and new analyses from the fourth wave of DataHaven's Community Wellbeing Survey (DCWS) is based on live interviews of 1,108 Connecticut adults conducted between July 27 and August 18, 2020.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the most recent wave of the DCWS included questions about social distancing, access to testing, vaccination, workplace safety, trust in institutions, and the impacts of the pandemic on residents’ health care and economic security.

The Community Foundation is a partner of DataHaven and leading funder of the fourth wave survey.

“The unprecedented challenges of 2020 demand an unprecedented response from those of us who are committed to our community and its people. Because COVID-19 is so unique, and therefore comes with unforeseen impacts, the DataHaven information is particularly valuable to us as we seek to understand how these dynamics are reshaping life in our community. We will use this data to educate ourselves and the larger community about where the needs are greatest and how to best direct energy and resources to addressing the dual pandemics of COVID-19 and racial inequity,” said The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven President and CEO Will Ginsberg.
