Violent crime in Connecticut has remained relatively stable over the last ten years in spite of a nationwide decline, and has actually increased slightly since 2010
When consistent accounting assumptions are applied, Connecticut’s unfunded liability in 2013 was higher than at any point during the prior seven years.
Looking beyond high month-to-month volatility, Connecticut has regained only 50% of payroll jobs lost during the last recession, while the United States as a whole has regained more than 90%.
