Civic Index – 4th Edition, 2018

The National Civic League’s Civic Index will be re-released in 2018. For 30+ years, the Civic Index has been the most powerful way to measure a community’s civic infrastructure – the formal and informal relationships, networks and capacities communities use to make decisions and solve problems.

Building on decades of work in communities, the fourth edition updates the Civic Index with a specific specific focus on equity and engagement; key components for healthy, thriving communities.

Use the Civic Index with a small group of community members, partner organizations or staff to spark conversation about community strengths and areas in need of improvement.

Email Aaron Leavy (aaronl@ncl.org) if you are interested in using the new Civic Index in your community.
