BRIDGEPORT

FAIRFIELD COUNTY

Fairfield County is the southwestern-most and most densely populated county of the U.S. state of Connecticut. A bedroom suburb of New York City, the county has a population of 916,829 according to the 2010 Census, giving a density of 1,465 people per square mile.[1] It is located within the New York-Newark-Bridgeport, NY-NJ-CT-PA Combined Statistical Area and contains four of the State's largest cities (Bridgeport (1st), Stamford (4th), Norwalk (6th) and Danbury (7th)) whose combined population of 433,368 is almost half the county's.

Fairfield County's Gold Coast helps rank it sixth in the US in per-capita personal income by the Bureau of Economic Analysis in 2005,[2] contributing substantially to Connecticut being one of the most affluent states in the US.[3]
 

In addition to its wealthy communities, Fairfield County is also home to lower-middle and working class-cities such as Bridgeport, and Norwalk. Other communities are more densely populated and economically diverse than the affluent areas for which the county is better known.
 

As is the case with all eight of Connecticut's counties, there is no county government and no county seat. As an area it is only a geographical point of reference. In Connecticut the cities and towns are responsible for all local governmental activities including fire and rescue, schools, and snow removal; in a few cases, neighboring towns will share certain resources.

NEW HAVEN COUNTY

New Haven County is a county located in the south central part of the U.S. state of Connecticut. As of the 2010 Census, the county population is 862,477 making it the third most populated county in Connecticut. There are 1,340 people per square mile.[1] Two of the state's largest cities, New Haven (2nd) and Waterbury (5th), are part of New Haven County.

County governments were abolished in Connecticut in 1960. Thus, as is the case with all eight of Connecticut's counties, there is no county government, and no county seat. Until 1960, the city of New Haven was the county seat. In Connecticut, towns are responsible for all local government activities, including fire and rescue, snow removal and schools. In some cases, neighboring towns will share certain activities, e.g. schools, health, etc. New Haven County is merely a group of towns on a map, and has no specific government authority. The county Sheriff system was abolished by voters and replaced by State Judicial Marshals in 2000. As a result, the state judicial system in New Haven County is currently split into three judicial districts: New Haven, Ansonia-Milford, and Waterbury.
