Citizenship Test

Americans and the Citizenship Test

Resources for Immigrants

One of the requirements to become a naturalized citizen of the United States is to pass a civics test. The knowledge contained within the civics test is supposed to be basic historical, social, and political information about the United States. There are many requirements to become a citizen – good moral character, physical presence, continuous residence – but the citizenship test is one that is symbolic of the process.

Ipsos Public Affairs gave the examination to 2,000 Americans. You can see how they performed here.
