Data News Item: **Important Note for Connecticut Data Users**

Due to changes in administrative boundaries in the state of Connecticut, SparkMap has updated the county-level location selection to use the latest Connecticut planning regions. Data for indicators sourced from the 2018-2022 American Community Survey 5-year estimates are direct estimates fas provided by the Census Bureau. Data for indicators with census-tracts, ZIP codes, and counties are population-weighted estimates based on the intersection of the underlying geographic area with the new planning region boundaries and should be interpreted with caution. For access to data and indicators using the old Connecticut county definitions, please use the ACS 2017-2021 assessment.
