Why This Indicator Matters
As a state, Connecticut has become increasingly diverse over the last two decades, mirroring the nationwide growth of populations of color. However, 55 percent of Connecticut’s child population is non-Hispanic White, and children of color are still more heavily concentrated in the state’s few urban areas. Whenever possible, this report includes indicators disaggregated by race and ethnicity in an attempt to shed light on persistent racial and ethnic disparities in outcomes and well-being, which are often obscured by statewide data.
Definition and Source
This indicator reports the percentage of children under the age of 18 who fall into the racial and ethnic categories designated by the U.S. Census. Where Census data is used, racial and ethnic categories refer to the categories self-reported by the head of the household or individual Census respondent. Respondents may report more than one racial group, and people of any racial group may also report any ethnic origin.
