The latest in Vermont data
At VTDigger, we want to make it as easy as possible for readers to get to know more about the topics we cover and how we report on Vermont. So we're making the data and tools for our stories available to the public as often as possible.
If you have an issue with the data here, contact the data reporter, Erin Petenko, at [email protected]
The Department of Health has been publishing town data as a static graphic, so two VTD reporters manually entered the statistics for towns with at least one case of Covid-19. Will update as available.|

Lobbying data from VT Secretary of State website for the first half of 2019 only.

Based on parsed Census data for Vermont county subdivisions, comparing the 2010 Census to 2018 population estimates.
Based on IRS SOI Migration data for 2011 to 2016. We filtered the dataset to Vermont, combined the five years of available data, and sorted by whether Vermont gains or loses population to the state.
The Agency of Education provided two datasets for this story: One that just included self-reported free and reduced lunch figures for each school, and the other that included detailed teacher salary figures, student-to-teacher-ratios, and race data, among other things. I’ve included both datasets, but I’m not including the linking document we created simply because I think the methodology is difficult to explain and easy to misinterpret. Reach out to Erin Petenko if you want access to that linked data.
Some of the data here was taken directly from the NOAA website, like the average annual temperature chart. The winter and summer temperatures below were taken from the NWS lookup tool for Burlington
