Participants Needed for Study of Civic Engagement

Posted on 1/25/2010 7:17:24 AM

Participants over the age of forty are needed for a study of civic engagement in adulthood.

What causes people to become involved in their communities and with politics? Dr. Tara Johnson from the Psychology Department at Indiana University of Pennsylvania is seeking middle-aged and older adult participants to complete an on-line survey at their own convenience. This study seeks to examine age differences in and predictors of civic engagement.

Participants will have a chance to receive compensation for their time (i.e., a drawing at the end of the study for one of two $50 gift cards to any establishment the winner chooses) and will have the opportunity to review group results once the study has ended.
