70 p. 

In collaboration with a county hospital and two local government planning offices, Greenfield Community College (GCC) conducted a survey of 1,200 randomly selected residents of Franklin County, Massachusetts, to obtain a demographic profile of area citizens and to identify their needs in the areas of postsecondary education, health care, transportation, and government services. The survey was conducted in two parts. First, a 34-item questionnaire was mailed to respondents soliciting: (1) demographic information, such as family size, gross income, employment status, educational background, type of transportation used, and shopping patterns; and (2) opinions concerning area health care needs, mass transportation, future industrial development, and the quality of service provided by GCC. Then, respondents were interviewed at home or by telephone to obtain their answers to 20 open-ended questions about the services GCC should provide, the improvements that should be made in area health care, and the adequacy of local government services. The survey report details methods and procedures, reports response rates for each of the two survey parts, and summarizes findings under six headings: county demographics; transportation; work and shopping patterns; attitudes concerning business, industry, and government; educational needs; and health care needs.
