Abstract

The Making Connections Cross-Site Survey provides a wealth of information on changing conditions in low-income communities. The survey has entailed interviews with large samples of families in Making Connections neighborhoods in all 10 sites at two points in time: first in 2002 or 2003 (depending on the site), and second in 2005 or 2006. A third wave was then conducted in the selected neighborhoods in 5 of the 10 sites in 2008 or 2009 (Denver, Des Moines, Indianapolis, San Antonio, and White Center). These fact sheets focus on the 2008/09 survey and significant changes between it and earlier waves in the 5 sites. They provide selected data on social and neighborhood conditions in Making Connections neighborhoods and discuss how the relevant indicators have changed over time. We expect that data on these basic indicators will inform understanding of many other branches of research using the survey data. The topics covered are: 1. Social networks 2. Civic participation 3. Community mobilization 4. Overall neighborhood conditions and safety 5. Neighborhood disorder/incivility In almost all sections, we note statistically significant changes in indicators between the first survey (2002/03) and the third (2008/09). In the first part of the first section (Table 1.1) however, we note changes between the second survey (2005/06) and the third, because key questions related to respondents getting and giving non-financial help were not asked in the first survey.
