Community Needs Assessment Techniques. Coping with Growth by Lorna Michael Butler( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to help local government officials, agency personnel, and members of citizen groups involved in the planning process for a rapidly growing community, this introduction to community needs assessment provides background information on the reasons for conducting community needs assessment, guidelines for determining which techniques are most appropriate, and a brief description of 13 different needs assessment techniques. Advantages and disadvantages of each method are given plus a list of references. The techniques include use of census and vital statistics records, content analysis, participant observation, case studies, social network analysis, surveys, key informants, life histories, nominal group process, delphi technique, advisory groups and task forces, community forums, and community impressions. Although a community needs assessment is an excellent means of involving the public in problem solving and developing local goals, the guide stresses the need to use multiple methods when carrying out a needs assessment--or many people and potential problem areas will fall through the slats. A brief, closing example illustrates how needs assessment techniques were used in Creston, Washington. (Brr)
A Team Training Model A Regional Approach to Changing Economic Conditions. Hard Times: Communities in Transition by Lorna Michael Butler( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A guide for community leaders, extension staff, and community or rural development practitioners outlines the evolution of a regional training model for community-based problem solving in rural areas experiencing economic decline. The paper discusses the model's underlying concepts and implementation process and includes descriptions of four workshops held in the western United States. It describes training methods and cites examples of participants in Montana, New Mexico, and Washington who applied the process to local situations, and speculates about further applications. Goals for workshop participants representing 29 communities included becoming more knowledgeable about fiscal, social, economic, and demographic consequences of decline, resources available to help cope with decline, processes of informing and involving people at home, and strategies for economic and social recovery. Aspects of workshop development included multidisciplinary approach, needs assessment and action planning, impact assessment, management and mitigation framework, case study, and action planning process. Success of the training model is attributed to the synergism of the team approach, the model's transferability and adaptability, the multiplier effect potential, and trainer-team followup. (LFL)
Population Change: Do You Know the Trends in Your Community? Coping with Growth by Lorna Michael Butler( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To help government agency representatives and community leaders understand local population trends, particularly in rapid growth situations, this publication outlines a simple framework for analyzing population changes and provides useful criteria that can be applied when considering management and policy alternatives. It is noted that two "population communities" must be considered: the local community of long term residents and the newcomer community. The guide points out some of the ways population information can be used to make informed guesses about social and economic effects of development. Suggestions are included for guiding citizens in responsible public decisionmaking and policymaking so that changes can be systematically managed. The suggested framework for population analysis poses practical growth questions that any rapidly growing community can apply in analyzing its own circumstances. In order not to overwhelm the citizen or planner who may be collecting population information, the framework focuses on priority needs so that only the most useful information is sought. Definitions are included as well as sources of population data and four references. (BRR)
