CivicLEADS: Civic Learning, Engagement and Action Data Sharing
Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR)’s Education and Child Care Data Archives at the University of Michigan is proud to announce the launch of Civic Learning, Engagement, and Action Data Sharing (CivicLEADS). Funded by a grant from the Spencer Foundation, CivicLEADS provides a centralized repository for data produced by the multi-disciplinary research surrounding civic education and action.
CivicLEADS provides access to quantitative and qualitative data for secondary analysis and promotes data discovery through our data, variable, and publication search tools. Beyond facilitating the sharing and discovery of data, CivicLEADS seeks to create a learning community around civic education and engagement research.
Visit this new resource for researchers who explore diverse topics including civic and political engagement, curricula and learning, social networks, media literacy, activism, and social movements.
Looking for data but not sure what terms to include? Try these search terms as a starting point:

We will add data and resources regularly, so please be sure to sign up for our mailing list.
We are always searching for high-quality data from research into civic education, involvement, action, and the intersection of the three. If you have conducted a study or know of an existing study which would make an excellent addition to CivicLEADS, please read more about how to share your data and contact David Bleckley to recommend a study.
