New Hampshire's Civic Health
11-19-2009
Earlier this week, I had an opportunity to sit in on an excellent presentation by the University of New Hampshire’s Carsey Institute. The occasion was the release of the Institute’s New Hampshire Civic Health Index 2009, a study assessing how civic engagement in New Hampshire stacks up to the nation as a whole. The project is reminiscent of research we conducted at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics in 2006.
 
As you might expect, New Hampshire’s civic culture compares favorably to the rest of the country, although there are some red flags when looking at the impact of demographic factors like income and education on levels of civic engagement. I encourage you to check out the full report here. Thanks to my friends at UNH for the opportunity to participate in the session.
