Issues in Ascertaining the Different Needs of Urban and Rural Community Leaders: Nontechnical Report.
Avery, Robert K.; And Others
A study was conducted using six Utah communities to develop methods for the identification and surveying of community leaders in small, medium, and large Utah communities. Questions concerned the relationship between identified problems and community size, and the design and utilization of appropriate research instruments. Community problem check lists were developed for conducting face-to-face and telephone interviews. Results indicated that (1) the local telephone directory can serve as a primary source in the identification and selection of representative community leaders; (2) community problems are, to some extent, a function of community size; and (3) the face-to-face and telephone interviewing methods provided information of equal quality at all community levels.
