"For the second year in a row, citizens were most interested in receiving government updates that impacted or related to the health of their families," said Scott Burns, CEO and co-Founder of GovDelivery. "And, while healthcare and jobs and employment stayed near the top of the list of topics most requested by the public, 2012 marked a significant increase in the number of messages requested around severe weather."

The reports are based on data from GovDelivery's clients representing more than 550 public sector organizations from around the world and illustrate the breadth and depth of government communications sent to millions of citizens throughout 2012. The reports unveil key trends across several categories, such as the top keywords and subjects of government-to-citizen communications. In this category, messages around health and healthcare, severe weather, and jobs and employment accounted for more than 50 percent of more 450 million messages sent in 2012.
