Research Problems Arising from Surveys and Studies

By Eli Picheny

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1949

This piece explores research problems in the field of Jewish social work. The major areas where problems arise are: in the method for obtaining objective knowledge about clientele; the method for defining the need for Jewish social services along with criteria for adequate standards; and in the method for measuring the effectiveness of the services provided. The piece concludes by asserting that Jewish social service is entering a new phase where the stress on social planning necessitates a better development of criteria for measuring the effectiveness of programs as well developing research instruments to measure shifts in standards.
