Summary Description

The "South Central Regional COG 2023 Equity Profile" highlights key social and economic disparities in the region. The report reveals that 42% of the 570,487 residents are people of color, with significant variations in homeownership, income, and health outcomes based on race and ethnicity. Additionally, it points to issues like housing cost burden, educational attainment gaps, and healthcare disparities, emphasizing the need for targeted local efforts to address these inequities.

For New Haven, CT, the report shows specific data comparisons, such as lower homeownership and higher poverty rates than the regional averages, highlighting particular areas for policy focus and community support.


Throughout most of the measures in this report, there are important differences by race/ethnicity and neighborhood that reflect differences in access to resources and other social needs. Wherever possible, data are presented with racial/ethnic breakdowns, as defined by existing federal data collection standards. However, for smaller groups or more detailed breakdowns, some values may not be available or have less reliable data. In these cases, values are marked as “N/A,” not available. Federal and statewide approaches to data collection, including small sample sizes, tend to hide disparities within certain population groups. This does not mean that a given population is not impacted by inequitable social conditions. DataHaven and other organizations often collect information on demographic characteristics besides race/ethnicity and encourage further analysis and advocacy that can lead to more inclusive data reporting.
