This analysis of housing patterns in Connecticut was done in collaboration with the Connecticut Fair Housing Authority and completed in 2015. Among the many findings,
- Connecticut is the 5th most residentially segregated state in the U.S. Hispanics are more residentially segregated in Connecticut than in Texas.
- Approximately 30 percent of Hispanic children and African American children in Connecticut live in a Racially Concentrated Area of Poverty (as defined by HUD).
"As is the case nationwide, decades of public and private policies and practices have resulted in high levels of segregation within many Connecticut communities. Demographic and geographic data indicate that several groups including people of color, people with lawful sources of income other than employment, people with disabilities, and single-parent households are particularly concentrated in the state’s lowest income communities." - State of Connecticut Department of Housing, Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice 2015
