The US Census Bureau takes a census of the population of the United States every 10 years which is known as the decennial census.  Since the decennial census attempts to provide a true count of the population rather than an estimate, it is a major source of population data for Connecticut. (To access Census data for other geographies of the United States, please visit American FactFinder.)
