Assisting Family and Friends

Many individuals serve their communities and care for others through acts of kindness that are not publicly recognized. It is important to capture and understand these informal ways that Arizonans are giving back, helping each other, and moving our communities forward. One such measure is the extent to which Arizonans do favors for, or otherwise help, family and friends.

According to the 2017 National Conference on Citizenship survey, Arizonans reported frequently providing help to each other at higher rates than the national average. Furthermore, in 2017, Arizonans earning less than $35,000 exceeded the state average and led other income brackets for giving in this way. Those with a high school diploma provide support to family and friends in this way at higher rates than those with a college degree or higher.
