Strategies for Family Impact Analysis.
Ory, Marcia G.
A framework for family impact analysis, developed at the Minnesota Family Study Center as part of the NIMH training program for family impact analysis, is presented. The four sections of the accompanying training manual are described as: (1) a set of questions which orient the reader to what family impact analysis is, its particular timeliness, the nature and extent of potential policy or programmatic impacts on families, and the different research strategies available for family impact assessment; (2) an aid for helping official policymakers, administrators and practitioners begin to understand and systematically assess the effects of policy or programs on family life; (3) actual case examples drawn from Minnesota Family Study Center trainees' internship experiences which illustrate the diversity of settings, the range of policy issues and potential impacts, and the variety of applicable methodological strategies; and (4) a selected bibliography on key works related to family impact analysis which provide further references.
