Data Collection

The South Central Regional Council of Governments serves as a resource for its member municipalities and constituents with data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau, including the (decennial) U.S. Census, American Community Survey (ACS), and County Business Patterns. SCRCOG also extracts information from datasets published by other agencies and organizations, such as the CT Department of Economic and Community Development, CT Department of Labor, and CT Office of Policy and Management.

Commuter Parking Lot Occupancy Survey

SCRCOG’s quarterly capacity counts for the Region’s commuter parking lots began in the fall of 1985 and replaced monthly Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) counts. Vehicles parked adjacent to commuter lots are included in the count total and represent demand. Survey totals include both legally and illegally parked vehicles.
