Baumel, C. Phillip; And Others
A general guide to organizing and conducting reliable and useful community surveys is reported. Organization for the survey involves identifying and contacting relevant community groups, and meeting with organizational representatives. Constructing a questionnaire involves careful wording and ordering of questions, and determining if questions should be structured or unstructured. Methods of sampling, distributing and collecting questionnaires, and interpreting and using survey results are also discussed. The appendixes include examples of questions used in community surveys, and statistical tools that may be used in analyzing the survey.
