Theoretical and Research Treatment of Community Organization and Interagency Cooperation.
Giammatteo, Michael C.; Westling, Louise
Nine hypotheses, employing community power as the single dependent variable and arranged under three categories of independent variables, are advanced. These categories are as follows: (1) Methodological Characteristics, (2) Demographic Characteristics, and (3) Economic Characteristics. The following results were obtained: (1) The type of power structure identified by studies that rely on a single method may well be artifacts of that method, (2) Social integration and region, variables which reflect something of the political life of the community, show some association with power structure; and (3) Economic variables reflecting patterns characteristic of increasing industrialization and moderately associated with less concentrated power structures. Implications and a review of literature are included. (Author/CJ)
