Evaluierung der Aktivität
Quantitative Fragebogenerhebung (schriftlich/offline), Qualitative Interviewbefragungen (persönlich), Fokusgruppen
The study employed a mixed methods approach of quantitative and qualitative instruments to research the topic. A small sample of Foróige Youth Clubs participated in completing questionnaires at the beginning and end of the club year. Surveys of members, focus groups with members and interviews with leaders were conducted for this research. Nine clubs returned questionnaires for 118 members for Survey 1, completed in September/October 2010. At the second survey stage at the end of the year (May 2011), six of the same clubs returned questionnaires for 71 club members. The sample sizes for both periods are sufficient to conduct multivariate levels of analysis and tests of statistical significance.
