About this item

This unique book is not only a dictionary or compendium of measures, but a comprehensive guide to measures and measurements in this field. Focusing on the geographic places where people live, work, and play, it provides a summary and analysis of some of the most widely community and neighborhood measures, with the goal of helping researchers, professors, students, and practitioners better understand and contribute to communities. It aims to promote the use of reliable and valid measures that can be used in community and neighborhood research program evaluation, community—based and community-level intervention research, research on neighborhood effects, and community-based participatory research. While the book targets multiple disciplines, including social work, sociology, urban and community development, public health, community psychology, inter alia, it can also be used to train students as well as staff from community agencies and to promote services, programs, and interventions that benefit community residents and institutions, including neighborhood organizations, community development corporations, foundations, intermediaries, city planning and urban development organizations.
