An Evaluation of Three Experimental Rural Youth Projects: Baseline Data for Experimental and Control Groups.
Reid, Joseph M.; Miles, Guy H.
The second of two final reports covering the second phase of a research program designed to maximize social and occupational adjustment of rural youth presented baseline data gathered for use in a future (February 1974) evaluation of program effectiveness. A model program for rural youth in the North Central States, the results of previous research, was implemented at three different sites--southern Iowa, northern Minnesota, and central Nebraska. The baseline data collected during the operation of the experimental program were used to match high school seniors who participated in the experimental program with seniors from control areas. Matching variables were sex, race, and an intelligence measure. The baseline data indicated that the experimental and control subjects who would be included in the followup study were comparable. Statistical data on the geographic area, the economic base of the area, and the particular problems facing rural youth in that area were reported for both the experimental and control communities in each of the three states. Data relevant to the characteristics of the research population (family income, race, sex, and intelligence) and its educational status (in-school or out-of-school) were also given. (JC)
