health surveys

Walking surveys are systematic observations made while walking through the chosen community. Windshield surveys are systematic observations for data collection while being in a moving vehicle (“Windshield and Walking Surveys,” 2013). Windshield or Walking surveys provide you an objective viewpoint of the surveyed community. This, in turn, helps you to accurately assess a community’s health needs. You can use either type of survey to invite and mobilize the community to participate in programs. There are times that community members do not realize the number of assets and/or resources their community possesses. A windshield or walking survey can bring to light such assets or resources.

For this Assignment:

  1. Consider your own community or select a community you are familiar with, for conducting a walking or a windshield survey.
  2. Read this week’s Learning Resources and pay specific attention to the resources concerning walking and windshield surveys.
  3. Review the resource Community Tool Box Chapter 3-Section 21: Windshield and Walking Surveys from this week’s resources.
  4. Decide on the areas you will include in your walking or windshield survey.
  5. Decide when you will conduct your walking or windshield survey.

Develop a questionnaire for your walking or windshield survey using the questions from the resource Community Tool Box Chapter 3-Section 21: Windshield and Walking Surveys (What to examine in a general community assessment survey). You can also generate additional questions, as you seem appropriate.
