The Partnership for Strong Communities is conducting a survey on what factors Connecticut young professionals consider when choosing where to live.
“We chose this topic for research because we have found that the cost of housing in Connecticut outpaces Median Income, making it very difficult for people to find housing that works for them,” said Nathan Fox, the survey organizer. “We believe this fact holds particularly true for CT’s young professionals and workers, as CT leads the nation in percentage loss of our 25-34 year-old population. It appears that many of our young residents are leaving the state to settle down in regions where housing is more affordable, but we wanted to back this theory up with hard numbers.
I’ve noticed that some people our age talk about their issues with CT and what they’d like to see change, but they aren’t sure how to go about making that change. There aren’t obvious ways to channel our energy and vision, but my hope is that this survey will provide an opportunity to engage in conversations on community development.”
So if you are between the ages of 20 and 35, take a few minutes to take the survey, which can be accessed here.
The Partnership for Strong Communities is based in Hartford.
