Extension Study Group Members View Their Clubs and Extension Home Economists. ANREI Publication No. 28.
Miller, Mason E.
The data presented in this report were selected from a 1972 study of Michigan Extension Study Group (ESG) members. Included are data descriptive of the women themselves and their situation (area and type of home, age, income, ESG experience, and especially their attitudes toward their ESG and their Extension Home Economists). Selected findings are presented in tabular form, showing proportions of responses from each of three areas of the State; members' feelings about their ESGs; and each respondent's level of satisfaction with her ESG. Other tables give percentages of respondents who would like to see changes made in their ESGs; how members feel about their Extension Home Economist's help to the ESG; the positive and negative reasons respondents answered as they did when asked how adequate the help was that EHEs gave to their ESGs; and a breakdown of the EHEs most important activities for the respondent and community. Major conclusions were: (1) most respondents said they were satisfied with their ESGs; (2) ESGs were important to them; (3) there were things that ESGs could do differently; (4) help from Extension Home Economists was adequate; and (5) members do pass on information and ideas to others.
