Census Data Resources

This page will help you find a variety of Census estimates for Connecticut and its counties, Congressional districts, and cities and towns.  These data are collected through multiple Census surveys.

American Community Survey (ACS)

The Census Bureau’s American Community Survey provides estimates for a broad range of social, economic, housing, and demographic indicators for the state, counties, and Congressional districts, as well as cities and towns.  Connecticut Voices has summarized data and trends for select indicators, such as poverty, income, and health insurance coverage.

  • 2013 estimates. For the eight cities with populations of 65,000 or more, the most recent Census ACS estimates are single-year estimates for 2013.
     
  • 2011-2013 estimates.  For cities and towns with populations of 20,000 or more, the most recent Census ACS estimates are for the three-year period of 2011-2013.
  • 2008-2012 estimates. For all cities and towns in the state, the most recent Census ACS estimates are for the five-year period of 2008-2012.

2010 Decennial Census

The 2010 Decennial Census provides a limited set of population and demographic estimates for all towns, but not the wide range of social, economic, housing, and demographic estimates available from the ACS.  Connecticut Voices has not created a summary of these estimates but they can be found on the Census website.
