FAIRFIELD COUNTY GAINS WHILE CONNECTICUT DECLINES
Connecticut has been experiencing a population decline, but that is not necessarily the case in Fairfield County. Our population increased by almost 50,000 from 2013 to 2017 while the rest of the state saw a decrease in population. According to the US Census report, over 2500 residents migrated from the New York burroughs to Fairfield County between 2011 and 2015.
Millenials are trying to strike a balance between commuting and affordability and Fairfield County offers the rural, white picket fence neighborhoods and towns where they want to raise their families. With more attractive property tax rates, the comforts of the suburbs and close proximity to New York City, Fairfield County remains a highly desirable destination.
