Working with Neighbors

The extent to which we work with our neighbors to address local issues provides a critical indicator of our overall civic health and capacity to generate solutions. It is also a reflection of strong social capital, which leads to better outcomes for individuals and communities.

Arizona trails the nation significantly on this measure, with 15.6% of Arizonans in 2017 reporting they had engaged with neighbors to do something positive for their community, compared to the national average of 20.9%. As with other measures of civic health, factors like income and educational attainment are strong predictors of whether individuals are engaged in this way.
