Background

    The Corporation plans to request clearance for the collection of 
data concerning the Civic Engagement Supplement, to be conducted by the 
U.S. Census Bureau in conjunction with the annual November Current 
Population Survey (CPS). In even-numbered years since 2008, the 
November CPS has included the Voting Supplement as well as the Civic 
Engagement Supplement; in odd-numbered years, the November CPS has only 
one supplement, the Civic Engagement Supplement.
    The Corporation uses the Civic Engagement Supplement to collect 
data for the Civic Health Assessment, an annual report that is mandated 
by the Serve America Act. The Civic Engagement Supplement provides 
information on the extent to which American communities are places 
where individuals are civically active. It also provides information on 
the number of Americans who are active in their communities, 
communicating with one another on issues of public concern, and 
interacting with public institutions and private enterprises.
    The supplement also provides data on Americans who engage in 
activities that promote positive relationships with those of equal and 
differing socioeconomic or professional levels. This survey is the only 
source of nationally representative data on such information as: Level 
of participation in organized groups, extent of political action and 
knowledge, extent of connections with other community members, and how 
often individuals get news and information from various media sources.
    When combined with demographic characteristics (age, sex, race, 
education, occupation, income), the data provides information on the 
relationship between these characteristics and the level of civic 
engagement in the United States. Government agency analysts and 
private, state and local leaders have use the data to compare levels 
specific to their geographic area to the national level of civic 
engagement, and to formulate policies that foster healthy communities.

that is currently cleared under control number 0607-0466, by the Census 
Bureau. The information collected under this clearance will be used in 
the same manner as under the existing clearance.
