State officials say data gathered from a variety of sources show that Connecticut is the best state for women in which to live and work.

The state Permanent Commission on the Status of Women and U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal are scheduled to release details of the findings on Monday at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.

Officials say data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the National Council of State Legislatures and several other sources show Connecticut women do better overall than their counterparts in all other states in terms of health care coverage, education and economic well-being.

Blumenthal will be joined by state lawmakers and women's advocacy groups to discuss the report's details on Monday.
