The Community Progress Report 2016
The Community Progress Report uses the latest economic, demographic, educational, health, and well-being data to provide benchmarks that identify strengths to build on and challenges that need to be addressed.
Three years ago we introduced Calibrating the Community: Data to Strengthen Greater New Haven (2013) to further our collective understanding of how people within our region are doing and how our region is doing as a whole. The Community Progress Report (2016) continues this ongoing work. Using the latest economic, demographic, educational, health, and well-being data, this report (a condensed, 12-page version of highlights taken from the comprehensive Greater New Haven Community Index 2016) provides benchmarks that identify strengths to build on and challenges that need to be addressed. We invite you to use these indicators to engage policy makers, businesses, institutions, and — above all — your neighbors and colleagues in conversations about how to build a stronger community for all of Greater New Haven.
