Garman, Keats; Hunter, Carolyn
This booklet is for people who are involved in community affairs, either as direct participants, group facilitators, or agency sponsors. The booklet discusses the reasons for considering a community survey and provides tips on how to prepare for a survey. Groups that have decided to write and conduct their own survey have the following major activities to complete: selecting a survey method, deciding what questions to ask and how the data will be used, deciding whom to survey, publicizing the survey, conducting the survey, tabulating and displaying survey information, and reporting survey results. Each of these key activities is discussed in detail. Several sample worksheets are included at the end of the booklet. (Author/MLF)
