Explore the Data

In 2009, NCoC was incorporated into the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act to expand the national civic health assessment in partnership with the Corporation for National & Community Service (CNCS) and the US Census Bureau. Today, the Civic Health Index draws upon data from the US Census Current Population Survey’s Voting, Volunteering, and Civic Engagement supplements. Data collection is made possible by funding from CNCS. NCoC has developed partnerships with states in blue to use data-driven approaches that strengthen civic health.
