Ascertainment of Community Needs in Jacksonville. Second Annual Survey.
LeRoy, Judith
In June 1976, telephone interviews were conducted with members of 297 randomly selected Jacksonville households by the Florida State University Communication Research Center to provide Florida public television broadcasters with information for developing programming plans which deal with current local issues and needs. After giving information regarding local residence and TV viewing habits, respondents were asked if they perceived any personal effects of potential problems presented in a 33-item checklist. The checklist was followed by a series of open-ended questions on local, state, and national problems. Results were very consistent with those of a similar Jacksonville survey in 1975. The checklist indicated that economic issues were perceived as dominant. In second place were concerns over crime, which had risen sharply from the previous year. Similar concerns were ascertained from the open-ended questions. Demographic data and comparisons are included in the report. (CMV)
