Introduction & Development of the Community-flow Measurement Instrument

About the webinar: This webinar addresses a representative US sample of homeowners between the ages of 25 and 50, who have minors living in the home, to determine various contentious items that they would like to have in their community in order to improve it. The topics covered relate to Neighborhood items, Public School items, and Public Service items. Items were analyzed using Multivariate methods and can be reviewed in the paper rather than during this webinar.

About the Speakers:

His diversified background enables him to approach issues from perspectives of engineering, teaching, economics, community development, marketing science, and housing research. He has extensive experience working as a housing government contractor with the U.S. Departments of Housing and Urban Development, Energy, and Agriculture to improve housing and building products.

His co-author, Amanda Stafford is a graduate student at the University of Florida in the Department of Family, Youth, and Community Sciences. She worked as an undergraduate research intern for Dr. Cantrell when the article was written.
