Abstract: This survey is the largest-ever on the civic engagement of Americans. It comprises both a national sample of some 3,000 respondents and community respondents in 41 communities nationwide (across 29 states) covering an additional 26,700 respondents. The survey measures everything from levels of giving blood, to hanging out with friends, to participating in various groups and associations, to levels of trust, to participation in group arts and group sports, to the diversity of our friendship patterns.
