Views of Members Toward Their Michigan Extension Study Groups. ANREI Publication No. 27.
Miller, Mason E.
The survey was designed to find out how the Extension Home Economists' lessening contact with extension study groups (ESGA) affected the clubs, the image of the home economist among club members, ideas for improving the ESGs, and to compare areas of the State. Research procedures included the use of a questionnaire and detailed instructions to each home economist for sampling her ESG mailing list. The data gathered are tabulated and provide information descriptive of the women themselves and their situation, including such aspects as home location, age, and annual family income. Three areas of the State are compared in the findings. Some conclusions were that: (1) members felt ESGs were important to them personally; (2) more than 75 percent of the women said they were either"satisfied" or "somewhat satisfied" with their ESGs; (3) a majority reported that the help of the extension home economist to their ESGs was adequate; and (4) members said the two most important things about their ESGs were learning and fellowship. There are 31 tables and the appendix consists of letters and forms related to the survey. (NH)
