Changing the way Connecticut uses data.
The Connecticut Data Collaborative is a public-private partnership that advocates for the public availability of open and accessible data to drive planning, policy, budgeting and decision making in Connecticut at the state, regional and local levels. We are a user-driven organization, serving nonprofits, advocates, policymakers, community groups, and funders in using data to drive policy and improve programs and services.
In addition to providing open access to structured and processed data, we can also work with you on to solve your custom data needs. Contact us for more information.
Our data portal contains over 135 datasets that we have curated and processed into a machine-readable structure. Use our custom data-exploration tools to narrow your selection, or download raw data in bulk and explore data on your own. You can browse by topic, search by organization, or search by dataset.Explore data
CTData in Action: MetroHartford Progress Points
In post-conference feedback that I’ve received, a few people have asked me to share examples of how others in the state have used ctdata.org. Since our next conference is not for a few months, I wanted to take this opportunity to share an example.
A couple weeks ago, the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving released the 2016 Edition of the MetroHartford Progress Points. The report looks at past and present efforts to tackle critical issues and builds an awareness of the key issues facing the region. The five main priorities in the report include:
- attracting and retaining a skilled workforce
- better connecting people to opportunity
- ensuring a quality education for all despite scarce resources
- building collaborative leadership and civic engagement to create long-term progress
CTData's 6th Conference A Success!
The CT Data Collaborative convened the sixth CTData statewide conference in late June, with approximately 125 people in attendance, reflecting the growth of the ctdata.org website and increasing interest in the use of data to inform policy and decision-making.
