"Your Community" was first published in 1939. It was revised in 1941 and again in 1947. Actually the manual is designed to assist persons or organizations in the study of community services and facilities. The manual tells how to study the health, education, safety and welfare status of any community, whether a township, borough, city or county. Although not intended as a guide to technically equipped surveyors making special social evaluations, it does give a wealth of background from which the interested citizen may organize his thoughts on community problems.
