Strengthening 4-H by Analyzing Enrollment Data
Hamilton, Stephen F.; Northern, Angela; Neff, Robert
Journal of Extension, v52 n3 Article 3FEA7 Jun 2014
The study reported here used data from the ACCESS 4-H Enrollment System to gain insight into strengthening New York State's 4-H programming. Member enrollment lists from 2009 to 2012 were analyzed using Microsoft Excel to determine trends and dropout rates. The descriptive data indicate declining 4-H enrollment in recent years and peak enrollment at grade 5. New members are more likely to drop out than members who have been involved for more than a year. New members who are high school students drop out at the highest rate. Returning members who are high school students drop out at the lowest rate.
