NVCOG, along with its municipalities, non-profits, and businesses, worked tirelessly to get residents to participate in the 2020 Census count to show the growth the Naugatuck Valley region was experiencing. The results of the count show that not all towns and cities grew in population. However, the results did show growth in racial diversity throughout the region.
Results from the analysis NVCOG has completed on the data released by the U.S. Census Bureau for redistricting purposes can be found in a dashboard or is available for download on our data page. In the NVCOG 2020 Census Redistricting Data dashboard, view the changes in the population from 2010 to 2020 in each of our municipalities, see how diverse the region’s population was in 2020, and more. Data tables on population and self-response counts, housing, and race and ethnicity are available for download on our Data Download page.
For any questions concerning the 2020 Census Redistricting Data analysis, please contact Richard Crowther Jr, GIS Analyst.
Even though NVCOG is not directly affected by redistricting, as a regional planning agency funded through state and federal sources that rely on Census data for financial distribution, we take each decennial Census seriously. Funds for our transportation projects, brownfield remediation, and environmental sustainability assessment all contain Census population counts as a factor in the funding.
