Use a Survey to Fight Poverty.
New Jersey Community Action Training Inst., Trenton.
This handbook is designed to help persons or groups plan, organize, and conduct efficient antipoverty action surveys. It shows how to use surveys to identify a specific problem in a slum neighborhood, measure the opinions, attitudes, and needs of the people involved, establish target areas, pinpoint problems needing immediate attention, decide where and what kinds of opportunities are wanted and needed to solve a problem, plan an effective attack, and conduct evaluations and followups. Information is presented on questionnaire construction, sampling, and the training and qualifications of interviewers, together with examples of action surveys on such problems and issues as adult education needs, housing conditions, prices, job training and placement, textbook revision, and physical facilities. A list of New Jersey community action organizations is included. (ly)
