Thanks to a collaboration between the Office of Policy and Management, UConn Department of Geography, Connecticut State Data Center, Connecticut Department of Public Health, University Libraries Undergraduate Team, and University Libraries IT Services, updated population projections have been developed for the state of Connecticut for 2015-2025 based on new methods. The population projections project was coordinated by Jonathan Pollak, a recent graduate of the UConn Department of Geography and involved a collaboration between state agencies, faculty, students, and library staff to enable these new projections to be developed in an expedited time frame to assist users across the state with planning, analysis, and decision making. These new projections include 3 fertility rates (High, Medium, Low) to assist agencies, organizations, and municipalities with planning as the population projections represent an estimate of the population for a specific area which is subject to change by a number of factors. These new projections utilize birth and death data provided by the Connecticut Department of Public Health and data from the 2010 U.S. Census.
