The Impact of Minority Presence in Girl Scouting on White and Minority Communities. Executive Summary.
Girl Scouts of the U.S.A., New York, NY.
This report on the attitudes toward Girl Scouting and minority participation in Girl Scouting is based on the results of the Girl Scout Internal Survey and a telephone survey of the general public conducted by the Roper Organization. A stratified sampling technique was used to select Girl Scout members, affiliated adults, and non-members for the internal survey. The population selected for the Roper Survey consisted of a national cross section of adults plus two "oversamples" designed to include an additional number of blacks and Hispanic Americans. The results of both surveys showed an overall favorable reaction by blacks and Hispanics toward Girl Scouting and its impact on minorities. Likewise, the majority of whites were said to approve of minority participation in Girl Scouting. (JCD)
