Partners and Projects

January 2022

CT Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV)

Our partners at CCADV asked us to help them analyze and visualize the first two years of de-identified data from CTSafeConnect.com, a new statewide hotline for people requesting help regarding intimate partner violence. To protect confidentiality, CCADV created a masked dataset with 50,000 rows of individual contacts between clients and staff, which we masked further by aggregating into 15 regions that resemble local service areas for use in students’ data stories.
