Infographic: Texas Ranks Low for Civic Participation


This post is also available in: Chinese (Traditional)

Whatever happened to Southern hospitality? This new infographic takes a look at civic live in the USA, comparing Texas to the national average. The results aren’t good. Texas residents are apparently less likely to discuss politics with their family and friends or contact elected officials. They are also less likely to discuss political or community issues online. It’s not all bad, however, as Texans are apparently slightly more likely to exchange favours with their neighbours. How might civic life in Texas influence the sustainability of its cities?
