Youth Data Tool

CIRCLE's exclusive online tool includes more than 40 indicators at the national, state, district, and county levels.

Youth Voting and Civic Engagement in America

To what extent are young people across the country participating in civic and political life, and what are the community conditions that help, hinder, and shape that engagement? Our comprehensive data tool allows you to better understand the landscape of youth civic engagement so you can help improve it.
