State of Urban Connecticut - 2019 examines the impact of education, employment, income, affordable housing, health disparities, transportation, immigration and re-entry justice on the quality of living for people who reside in the urban centers of Connecticut. Through a collaboration between the Urban League of Southern Connecticut and its research partner, Quinnipiac University, qualitative data were collected through focus groups and interviews. Focus group participants consisted of Millennials, urban professionals, people from working families with children, seniors and people from low-income communities. Interviewees included state officials, nonprofit executives, faith leaders and educational administrators. The target cities for this research investigation were Bridgeport, Danbury, Hartford, New Haven, Norwalk, Stamford and Waterbury. For each of the areas examined in the report, recommendations are presented for residents and community leaders, stakeholders and policymakers. State of Urban Connecticut - 2019 is a guidance document that can be used to inform policy and to empower the lives of people and communities in urban Connecticut.
