    Connecticut evictions in 2022 surpassed pre-pandemic numbers. There were more than 22,000 evictions statewide last year, according to data collected by The Connecticut Fair Housing Center. That yearly number exceeds evictions reported in at least the previous five years.

    The Day has published a series of stories on this growing issue. Day reporter Greg Smith in partnership with University of Connecticut professor Mike Stanton and students in his advanced investigative reporting class analyzed the eviction data and told the stories of desperate tenants and frustrated landlords.
