This workbook is intended to assist public housing authorities and other service organizations with evaluating crime control and criminal victimization prevention programs. It is designed as a guide for housing authorities collecting survey data from residents of developments planning to launch crime intervention programs. Effective evaluation requires that data be collected both prior to and during the course of the intervention programs. The workbook contains a questionnaire design, sampling methodology, data collection preparation activities, data collection, data processing, and analysis. Each section provides guides for conducting all stages of the research project, such as training the interviewers and compiling the survey results into usable data.
