While you make your giving decisions this Christmas Season, I hope you'll keep the Civitas Institute in mind.

We're here every single day, fighting for small, accountable government, and working to diminish the influence of the liberal Left in our state.

We don’t take government funds, and we won’t ever take stolen taxpayer money. We go out and ask for it, and now I'm asking you.

If you like our work and you think our mission is valuable, will you help keep us in the fight?

U.S. Census Bureau, Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates

Note: Beginning with the 2005 estimates, the Census Bureau now incorporates American Community Survey data rather than Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic supplement data into its model. Due to changes in the model and the ratio of model-error variance to sample-error variance, the Census Bureau does not have an accepted method for comparing county-level model-based estimates. See U.S. Census Bureau for methodology changes, collection methods, and comparison limitations.
