The National Conference on Citizenship

The National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC) is a congressionally chartered organization dedicated to strengthening civic life in America. We pursue our mission through a nationwide network of partners involved in a cutting-edge civic health initiative and our cross-sector conferences. At the core of our joint efforts is the belief that every person has the ability to help their community and country thrive.

The Latest

Following the 2012 Kentucky Civic Health Index, the 2016 report shows more Kentuckians are volunteering, making charitable contributions, and registering to vote. However, new findings revealed that fewer than half of Kentuckians have confidence in media, a decline of more than 10 percent in three years, and fewer Kentuckians are trusting of their neighbors.

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.
