Elm City disparities persist | Yale Daily News: "New Haven continues to face severe racial and income disparities in quality of health and educational achievement, according to a comprehensive report released Tuesday by the local nonprofit DataHaven.

The report, titled “Community Index 2013,” covers New Haven proper along with 12 suburbs and draws upon data from a wide variety of sources, including census data, hospital data and DataHaven’s own analyses. The report’s findings show that the inequality New Haven residents face is more dramatic than that of most other American cities. In New Haven, an individual’s race, income level and neighborhood level is a large determinant of his or her overall health and quality of education."
