The Haitian Informal Sector In Miami, Alex Stepick May 2016

The Haitian Informal Sector In Miami, Alex Stepick

Alex Stepick

The nature of immigration policy toward Haitians in southern Florida is largely responsible for the nature of their participation in the labor market. As individuals with an ambiguous status in the United States they are forced to work for low wages on the fringes of the formal sector of the economy or in Miami's growing informal sector. Most notably an example of generative economic activity is the growth of Little Haiti in Miami and the support it provides its residents.

Family Resemblance: A Study Of Linguistic Conformity Within Family Systems, Rebecca L. Garnett Dec 1991

Family Resemblance: A Study Of Linguistic Conformity Within Family Systems, Rebecca L. Garnett

Critical and Creative Thinking Capstones Collection

This thesis reports the results of an empirical study designed to test two hypotheses from the early psychiatric work of C. G. Jung: first, the existence of a "family disposition" toward the word association test (WAT), and second, the theory that there is interference between the "thinking" and the "feeling" functions in an individual's cognitive processing. The experiment involved 52 normal subjects from 15 families, ranging in age from 12 to 65. Subjects were tested using an association instrument adapted from the WAT developed by Jung (Jung, 1973). Response commonalty was examined along several dimensions: identical verbal response, identical category …

Reaching Extension's Clientele: Exploring Patterns Of Preferred Information Channels Among Small Farm Operators, Glenn Israel Dec 1991

Reaching Extension's Clientele: Exploring Patterns Of Preferred Information Channels Among Small Farm Operators, Glenn Israel

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Effective delivery methods are important to the impact of Extension programs. The effectiveness of delivering Extension programs can be increased by matching the information channels used by Extension to those preferred by segments of the clientele. This study explores the preference patterns of clientele for obtaining information. The influence of selected individual and structural characteristics on those patterns also is examined. Data from a mail survey (using the Total Design Method, or TDM) of small farm operators from six counties in Florida indicate that preference patterns vary. The analysis, using confirmatory factor analysis, verified the presence of a lower cost …

Creating Entrepreneurship In Rural Sociology, Rusty Brooks Dec 1991

Creating Entrepreneurship In Rural Sociology, Rusty Brooks

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Southern rural sociology finds itself at an important political, social, and economic juncture. Given present funding constraints, land grant university faculty working in rural sociology must assume a more entrepreneurial posture if the discipline in to survive the challenges that confront it. The emergence of the importance of policy analysis to the agenda of contemporary southern politics provides a "market window" for rural sociologists to contribute to the maintenance and enhancement of rural sociology in the region and to the present and future quality of life in the South. This paper examines these issues and proposes an entrepreneurial model for …


The Receptivity To Housing Programs In The Rural South, Gladys Shelton, Kenneth Gruber Dec 1991

The Receptivity To Housing Programs In The Rural South, Gladys Shelton, Kenneth Gruber

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Adequate and affordable housing continues to be a serious problem in many rural areas of the Southern United States. This problem has been exacerbated by several major events in the past two decades, including the "population turnaround" in the 1970s, which increased the demand for housing as the number of people living in rural areas increased. The housing affordability crisis then resulted from a spiraling rise in housing costs greater than household annual income and a reduction in federal spending for housing programs. The combined effect of these events suggests local communities must now look more to state level initiatives …


Testing Tdm Modifications With Mail Surveys During A Southern Farm Study: A Research Note, John Ballweg Dec 1991

Testing Tdm Modifications With Mail Surveys During A Southern Farm Study: A Research Note, John Ballweg

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Based on data collected during a mail survey of crime and vandalism on farms in a southern state, this study involves a modification of two procedures in the Total Design Method: 1) individually signed cover letters; and 2) replacement questionnaires for the second mailing. While the first procedure was found to have no significant effect on the return rate, the inclusion of replacement questionnaires with the second mailing improved the response rate by a wide margin (more than double the letter-only mailing). The implications of audience type (in this case a farm audience) and other survey design features on response …


Community Attachment: A Research Note Examining The Effects Of Gender, Stephanie Sayers Fowler Dec 1991

Community Attachment: A Research Note Examining The Effects Of Gender, Stephanie Sayers Fowler

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

The purpose of the study is to examine the effects of gender on feelings of community attachment. This is done through the development of a measure of emotional response to a community, which is then tested, using the techniques of confirmatory factor analysis, for gender variation. The data are from a 1985 survey mailed to 1400 residents of four rural North Carolina counties. Responses from 1200 of these residents provide the sample. The author develops a model which focuses not on the well established relationship between satisfaction with service provision and community attachment, but on the relationship between emotional responses …

"For much of American history, cities have been depicted as centers of sin and corruption. As a result, they have been neglected, ignored, castigated, criticized, shunned and despised by citizens and government alike. Americans just don't like cities."
