Social Indicator Surveys: Their Implications for Educational Programmes.
Davis, Earl E.; Fine-Davis, Margret
Selected results from two nationwide surveys of subjective social indicators conducted in the Republic of Ireland in 1977 and 1978 are presented. Approximately 2,000 respondents were randomly selected from the Electoral Register for each of two surveys. The surveys were part of a series of experimental studies of subjective social indicators carried out in eight member countries of the European Community, under the auspices of the Statistical Office of the European Communities. The foci of the two surveys were health, housing, neighborhood, and working life. The results were examined with a view toward their implications for changes in educational programs, both in terms of innovative curricula, and structural changes in the educational system itself. Examples from the findings of the social indicator surveys were selected which were representative of a range of topic areas and had implications for different educational programs, including health education, training of medical personnel, education of managers, public servants and other policy makers.
