"I know there have been reports of us having the highest median income, low unemployment and crime but it’s not true." You say the numbers "aren't true" - what are you basing that on? Alternative facts? A limited sample based on your experience?
The US National unemployment rate is 4.1%. Connecticut's is (or was, in September, 4.6%) - a little higher, but still pretty good.
Connecticut's median household income compared to other states is pretty good as well - at $71,346 in 2015, we ranked #5 among states in income. (US median is about $59,000).
We have about 3.6 million residents, and no, most are not on welfare.
Yes, there have been some pretty high profile businesses exiting the state (you mention 2), but the economy is far from being in a recession. Connecticut's GDP growth for 2016 was 1.0%. Not great, but positive territory. (the Overall US rate was 1.5%)
Having said all this, there is definitely a divide between the Southwestern portion of the state (near NYC), and the rest of the state. Communities like Fairfield, and Greenwich are super high-end, with very high median income and very expensive real estate. The rest of the state is not nearly as well-off. Also Connecticut's cities are not in great shape. Cities like Bridgeport and Waterbury have very high levels of poverty. So there are problems.
But we're far from an economic collapse.
