A Study of the Relative Importance of Selected Content and Clientele of Cooperative Extension Service Programs as Reflected by the County Commissioners from Rural and Urban Counties in Florida.
Kelly, Earl McNeil
County commissioners from Florida's fifteen most rural and fifteen most urban counties were compared in terms of their personal and social characteristics and the relative importance they attribute to selected content and clientele of Cooperative Extension Service programs. Association between these two comparisons was then assessed to determine whether or not modifications of programs were in order, to determine the need for better communication, and to determine whether or not extension work can be effectively administered uniformly in rural and urban counties. Conclusions were that commissioners find extension programs worthy of continued support, the State and Federal priorities are generally compatible with County priorities, and that although there were significant personal and social differences between the two commissioner groups, there was not a polarization along rural-urban lines in terms of program content and clientele. Data gathered are presented and analyzed in 182 tables. (MS)
