EVALUATION OF FAMILY SERVICE PROGRAM, HOME ECONOMICS DIVISION OF COOPERATIVE EXTENSION, CLINTON COUNTY, NEW YORK. SUPPLEMENT TO EXTENSION STUDY NUMBER 15.
ALEXANDER, FRANK K.
COMBINED DATA ON THIRD AND FOURTH CYCLE LESSONS OF THE CLINTON COUNTY FAMILY SERVICE PROGRAM WERE USED TO STUDY THE SOCIOECONOMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PARTICIPANTS AND TO EVALUATE THE EFFECTS OF TEACHING. PLACE OF RESIDENCE, HOME OWNERSHIP, AGE, EDUCATIONAL LEVEL, MARITAL STATUS, FAMILY COMPOSITION, EMPLOYMENT, MOBILITY, INCOME, AND PARTICIPATION WERE AMONG CHARACTERISTICS DISCUSSED. BOTH GROUPS HAD A LARGER PERCENTAGE OF URBAN PARTICIPANTS, FEWER WOMEN FROM OWNER FAMILIES, A LOWER MEDIAN AGE, AND A GREATER NUMBER OF PERSONS PER HOUSEHOLD THAN THE AVERAGE COUNTY OR RURAL POPULATIONS. THE HIGH RATINGS OF LESSONS INDICATED SATISFACTION AND PRE AND POST TEST SCORES SHOW SIGNIFICANT GAINS IN KNOWLEDGE. IMPLICATIONS SUGGEST THAT RECRUITMENT SHOULD BE CONTINUED AS IT HAS BEEN SINCE BOTH GROUPS DIFFERED IMPORTANTLY AND UNFAVORABLY FROM THE COUNTY'S TOTAL AND RURAL POPULATION. THE FAMILY SERVICE AIDES, WHEN TRAINED BY COMPETENT HOME ECONOMISTS, CAN TEACH PARTICIPANTS SO THAT THEY MAKE SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS. (PT)
