Civility in America: An Annual Nationwide Survey

In 2010, Weber Shandwick and Powell Tate, in partnership with KRC Research, released the first annual Civility in America: A Nationwide Survey to gauge American’s attitudes toward civility in a variety of areas impacting American society and daily life. The fourth wave of Civility in America was conducted in May 2013 as we continue to track perceptions and experience over time.

This year’s study found that civility in America continues to disintegrate and rude discourse and behavior are becoming the “new normal.” Reports of personal infringements are on the rise, and while Americans continue to blame politicians as the leading source of our nation’s civility problems, the Internet/social media has for the first time risen into the top ranks of perceived causes of incivility.
