National Home Start Evaluation. Interim Report 4: Program Analysis.
Fellenz, Peter; And Others
This report, the fourth in a series of evaluations for Home Start planners and administrators, presents an analysis of the Home Start program operation during the fall of 1973 and a description of the data base being developed for the forthcoming cost-effects analysis. The first chapter is an executive summary of the interim findings and future study issues. Subsequent chapters include discussions of the three major program dimensions of demographics, treatment (a typical home visit, most frequent interaction patterns, and methods of determining effectiveness of treatment), and costs. Data collected from interviews, observations and records at the 16 Home Start sites are summarized briefly for each dimension. Data tables and an appendix containing supportive information are included. (ED)
