Also on a regular basis, we’re told how well — or poorly — we’re doing economically. But what is the state of our “civic health?” How good is our “civic engagement?”
A new report — “Missouri Civic Health Assessment 2010,” issued right before the elections — says that, in most cases, Missourians are more active, including voting more regularly, than national averages.
