    Pandemic to Prosperity: South is a thoughtfully curated set of indicators tracked over time to illuminate the challenges facing the South’s most vulnerable. History has shown that large-scale crises accelerate pre-existing trends, exacerbate inequities, and permanently change societies and civic life. For decades, the American South has lagged on nearly every indicator of prosperity and equity, and similar patterns are evident as we emerge from the Covid crisis. Pandemic to Prosperity: South offers an overview of the health-and-economic crisis's impacts on our lives and livelihoods, governments, civic institutions, and overall well-being, with a focus on the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.  The National Conference on Citizenship launched the Pandemic to Prosperity report series in July 2020 and began co-publishing the report series with the Southern Economic Advancement Project — which works to lift up policies that address particular vulnerabilities in the South — and Fair Count — whose work focuses on strengthening pathways to continued civic participation — to document the state of the South during the pandemic in 2021. In 2022, Pandemic to Prosperity: South is updated quarterly.
