Since our founding nearly two decades ago, CIRCLE has produced hundreds of analyses of youth voting, civic education, and other aspects of young people's preparation for and participation in civic life. You can find our most recent and relevant work throughout this website.
In this section, you can find a selection of some of our older data and analyses, which remain valuable for understanding trends in youth civic education and engagement over time. We encourage you to explore this content with an understanding that it often reflects the best available data at the time, and that our understanding and approaches have evolved over time.
CIRCLE has been studying youth participation in elections since its inception. Explore a selection of key data and analyses about elections from 2004-2010.
From 2003 to 2016, we published a series of working papers that provide more in-depth, scholarly analysis of specific topics related to young people's civic education and engagement.
Fact Sheets and Other Analyses
Our work has spanned a broad range of areas related to young people's civic life: from K-12 civics standards to racial and socioeconomic gaps in participation.
