• 'Community Helping' up 31% in the US

    Community, Communication Design


    Social Capital Blog just pointed me to some interesting new statistics recently published in the US.

    "They also headlined findings from the Current Population Survey data in 2008 on volunteering and civic engagement showing volunteering remaining steady in 2008 and “[t]he number of people who worked with their neighbors to fix a community problem rose by 31 percent, from 15.2 million in 2007 to 19.9 million in 2008″, a remarkable increase in a year, which CNCS attributes to the Obama Administration’s United We Serve initiative and Serve.gov website."

    That is amazing!!!!

    Volunteering in America have a new wizzy website which shows the statistics on volunteering and civic engagement by state and city.
