4.4 Project Survey

Page last updated: January 2014

A mix of closed questions, rating scales and open-ended text responses were used in the survey (Appendix D) to address the following key areas of enquiry:

  • Changes to aims and objectives
  • Activities and strategies
  • Target groups
  • LIFE Framework Action areas
  • Resourcing, including supplementary funding sources
  • Staffing
  • Collaborations
  • Sustainability
  • Progress towards achieving LIFE Action Area Outcomes
  • Program administration
The survey was circulated on 18 October 2012. A total of 25 surveys (51%) were returned by the closing date (31 October 2012). Follow-up with projects increased the response rate to 96% response, with 47 of the 49 projects submitting surveys.

To generate a complete data set for analysis purposes, pre-existing data was used by AHA to construct survey responses for the two non-responding projects. There is some missing data in these responses.
