Obtaining citizen feedback: the application of citizen surveys to local governments by Kenneth W Webb( Book )

8 editions published in 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report explores the potential value to city and county governments of citizen surveys, particularly those undertaken on a regular annual basis. The report is based mainly on an examination of the Dayton Public Opinion Center, on published literature dealing with survey sampling, and on Urban Institute experiences with the use of local citizen surveys in various projects. Separate chapters of the report discusses the various uses of citizen surveys, dangers in conducting citizen surveys, survey procedures, costs and funding sources for surveys, organizational options for conducting surveys, and the author's conclusions and recommendations. Four examples of survey questionnaires are included in the appendix, and a selected bibliography of relevant publications is presented. (Author/JG)

Improving the use of quality circles in police departments by Harry P Hatry( Book )

9 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the practical issues that police departments face when considering the adoption, design, and implementation of "quality circle" programs, in which small groups of employees, primarily nonmanagement personnel from the same work unit, meet regularly to identify, analyze, and recommend solutions to problems confronting their work unit. This book reports on a 2-year (1983 and 1984) study of quality circles that involved a relevant literature review, a mail survey of police departments, telephone interviews with department personnel responsible for quality circles, a review of materials, and onsite field work. The study resulted in indications of the likely outcomes of police quality circles and information about specific ways to better apply quality circles and similar employee participation programs in police departments. The study concludes that the use of quality circles in police departments has the potential to achieve a number of small-scale service improvements in work units that use them. The effective use of quality circles, however, requires modest expenditures for training, overtime pay, and other activities of quality circles. There is no evidence to date that quality circles produce any major improvements in service delivery or productivity. The circles have typically focused on improving working conditions and the resolution of relatively minor, narrowly focused operating problems. Absent continuing maintenance of the circles and the identification of issues that impact employees' work, quality circles tend to deteriorate after a year or two. The long-term survival of quality circles depends on voluntary participation, a motivated facilitator who is given time to devote to the circle's operation, and explicit support and recognition from upper management. Detailed recommendations are offered for the development and maintenance of quality circles so they can fulfill their potential for improving work unit operations and employee morale. 24 notes and 101 references
An introduction to sample surveys for government managers by Carol H Weiss( Book )

7 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is intended to provide government managers with some perspective on the nature and implications of sample surveys, their likely costs, and what can be expected from them. The authors discuss sample surveys less from the technical side than from the perspective of the officials who will make management decisions about an overall survey. Little attention is devoted to specific research methods, though the bibliography lists publications that provide such information. Much of the discussion applies to surveys in which government employees, rather than private citizens, supply the responses. Separate chapters discuss the overall sample survey process and the steps involved; the advantages of conducting a survey under government auspices, rather than through a university or private research organization; the costs involved in each phase of a survey; factors affecting the accuracy of a survey; and some further considerations in conducting a survey. The appendix contains tables that illustrate costs of conducting sample surveys of different types and scope. (Author/JG)
