CNCS is also mandated by the Serve America Act (2009) to produce an annual Civic health assessment in partnership with the National Conference on Citizenship. The proposed survey will be the only source of nationally representative data on the number of Americans who are active in their communities, through volunteering, social interactions, political activities and civic behaviors. The purpose of collecting data on civic engagement and volunteering is to provide scholars, government officials and policymakers with official government measurement on civic behaviors in the United States.
