Civic Health in Wisconsin: Connectedness in Context

A coalition of nonpartisan Wisconsin-based organizations, in partnership with the National Conference on Citizenship, has released the first-ever report on Wisconsin’s civic health. You can find the full inaugural report here.

Coalition members include:

With the publication of this report, Wisconsin joins 30 other U.S. states in measuring civic health, laying the groundwork for tracking changes and improvements. “Civic health” is a term that refers to the degree to which citizens participate in their communities, from local and state governance to interactions with friends or family. Civic health also relates to the overall well-being of neighborhoods, communities, states, and the nation.

This publication also marks the beginning of a Wisconsin civic health initiative, which will mobilize these data to strengthen and catalyze civic engagement efforts in Wisconsin communities.
