Mental Retardation in a Canadian Province: A Research Proposal. Report Number 3.
Portal-Foster, C. W.; And Others
The proposed research design, to be actualized beginning in 1969, was evolved to determine the nature and prevalence of mental retardation in Canada and to relate them to other variables. Issues raised concerning both nature and prevalence were reviewed as were surveys in seven different geographic areas. A pilot study conducted in two small villages on Prince Edward Island produced an operational index of mental retardation and a research instrument including enumeration data, measures of intellectual and social competence, case histories, observation, and personality and attitudinal variables. Sampling procedures and field work plans were set; scoring, coding, and statistical facilities and techniques were fixed. (JD)
