Wood, Stephen C.
A survey was distributed and administered to community service classes at the nine member colleges of the Los Angeles Community College District during March of 1976 in order to obtain information on the demographic characteristics of enrollees. Results indicated: (1) 73.7% of the enrollees were female; (2) there was a wide range in participating age groups, with the largest percentage (22.3%) in the 26-35 year old range; (3) 51.4% of the respondents were married; (4) 24.9% of the respondents listed their occupations as professional, followed by 22.2% who listed themselves as homemakers; (5) the educational level most commonly attained by respondents was high school completion; (6) 39.7% of the respondents worked at least a 40-hour week; (7) 35.8% indicated no employment; (8) 62.2% were caucasian; (9) 36.4% received information on the community service class by word of mouth, while 17.8% gained information through a brochure. The diversity of the population served was the most outstanding feature of the students enrolled in classes of the community services program. District-wide graphic data is included and narrative information relevant to the individual colleges is provided. (Author/JDS)
