Surveys, Scans, and Assessments: Quantitative Data about Your Community

Tuesday, July 16th
8:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Texas 4-6

Surveys are the most widely used mechanism by which coalitions gather information about their community. They provide large amounts of data with seemingly little effort. The quality of that quantitative data is a growing concern for many coalitions, including issues of poor response rates, unanswered questions, unaligned information and others. This session will address several quantitative gathering methods and steps for creating strong instruments, fielding the instruments, and preliminary analyses of community-level data. Aligning quantitative instruments with other national instruments will be included in the content of the session.

At the end of the training session, the participants will be able to: 

1. Be able to create effective survey instruments to with more reliability and validity.
2. Field instruments toward improving response rates.
3. Conduct preliminary analyses of quantitative data sets
4. Identify data sets and instruments with which to align ongoing data collection efforts.
