Loudoun County Needs Assessment

CSR and LCDFS collaborated to design three survey questionnaires. A) web-based survey of human services programs in the county to help understand the array of human services resources already in place b) mail survey sent to 2,200 households in Loudoun and c) `lobby survey` placed at ten human service agencies for clients to fill out and return anonymously. Project design used a stakeholders workshop about and two focus groups to guide the creation of a viable instrument that was used for both main resident distribution and for the agency lobbies. CSR and LCDFS also added a community assets inventory to inform discussions about resources already in-hand. CSR provided all analysis and a full written report of the findings from the surveys.

Aid & Application Awareness study 09

The goal of this survey was to replicate a set of surveys done in 2007 and 2008 which gathered information about how high school seniors and their families make choices about college. The surveys were focused particularly on financial concerns or limitations. The Center for Survey Research (CSR) was contracted by the researchers (Sarah Turner, Professor of Economics & Education at the University of Virginia and Christopher Avery, Professor of Public Policy at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University) to conduct the survey and collect the data. Although many of the same questions were asked, this year`s protocol did differ significantly from the 2007/2008 survey design; most notably, the survey was only administered to students and only in the spring. Because many high school seniors could still be under eighteen years old when they were first recruited for the survey, parental consent was required before they could be contacted. Responses were collected via the Internet and on paper forms.
