Data analysis and sample size issues in evaluations of community-based health promotion and disease prevention programs : a mixed-model analysis of variance approach.
The growing interest in community-based approaches to health promotion and disease prevention (HP/DP) has been accompanied by a growing need to evaluate the effectiveness of such programs.
Special issues that arise in these evaluation studies include (1) entire communities are assigned to intervention and control groups, (2) only a small number of communities can usually be studied, (3) the time course of changes in behavior and other outcomes is often of interest, and (4) surveys to measure such changes over time can be conducted with either repeated cross-sectional samples or with longitudinal samples.
