Abstract:

Focusing on first-ever Maryland Civic Health Index, this paper describes a pioneering initiative to create state level indices of civic health as a part of a benchmark initiative for annual assessments of civic health in the United States under the authority of the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act. The Maryland Civic Health Index, a collaboration between the Maryland Commission on Civic Literacy, important civic partners, and the National Conference on Citizenship, is an analysis of state data that is included in the National Conference on Citizenship's 2010 National Civic Health Index. U.S. Census data was used to create the annual Index. The paper first reports on the overall patterns of civic engagement in the first-ever Maryland Civic Health Index. These patterns reveal that the Free State finds itself ahead of the national average on almost every major indicator of civic health. Marylanders are highly connected to information, discuss issues and politics often, and vote in greater proportions than the national average. More Maryland citizens are members of organized groups and are leaders of those groups than is the norm nationally. The paper also describes results of the Maryland's first-ever Civic Literacy Summit. At the Summit, several hundred Maryland educators, leaders, and citizens reflected on the state's civic health and made a series of recommendations for ways to improve it.
