Nix, Harold L.; Seerley, Norma R.
This report, the seventh in the Community Social Analysis Series conducted by the Institute of Community and Area Development and the Department of Sociology and Anthropology of the University of Georgia, summarizes the findings of a study of DeKalb County, Georgia. The community reconnaissance method was used in selecting and interviewing 117 positional-reputational leaders and in making demographic, historical, and current events sketches as background information for the study. To get a random sample of the views of DeKalb County's average citizens, a random sample was drawn from the registered voter list and 322 voters were interviewed. Included in the report are an introduction to a community social analysis, a history of DeKalb County, a descriptive analysis of the county's social structure, and implications of the data for the seventies. A rank order of respondents' views of community needs and problems is appended, as well as a copy of the leader nomination questionnaire and interview schedule and a list of available resources. (KM)
