A key focus of data analysis will be identifying disparities in participation across place and population. One unique contribution of the CCEP is its series of policy briefs, each highlighting emerging analysis from California registration and voting data (for the Latino, Asian and youth electorates). For instance, CCEP data show registered turnout and percent of the electorate results for these groups by age, gender and party for counties and cities across the state of California. GIS spatial analysis is conducted highlighting hot spots of voting patterns (higher and lower participation rates) across the state. The project also aims to support research that explores non-traditional measures of civic engagement, particularly those that may be more likely experienced by disadvantaged or disconnected groups.
The CCEP invites inquiries and feedback on these data from all interested audiences. Click here to share your thoughts.
