OOH in Connecticut: The State by Numbers <br/> <span style='color:#000000;font-size: 18px;'>Friday Fast Fact</span>

For today’s Fast Fact, let’s take a look at some OOH statistics across the 8 counties of Connecticut!

Unlike most states in the US, Connecticut interestingly does not have county-level governments within the state; they were abolished in 1960, leaving only the county Sheriffs and their sub-departments. This form of local governance was also abolished, in 2000.

Currently, Connecticut is undergoing a shift in the county-level makeup of the state. The state plans to replace the existing 8 counties with 9 “Councils of Government”, or COGs. These Councils will have the functions and regulatory abilities that Counties in other states generally have – the full switch over is planned for completion sometime this year.
