The impact of critical events of the 1980s on core functions for a selected group of local health departements.
Directors of 14 public health departments were surveyed for their perceptions on the impact of 20 critical events of the 1980s on public health performance.
The departments were selected in 1979 from among those that were highly regarded by public health experts for exemplary performance, especially with regard to personal health services.
The departments were the subjects of intensive case studies in 1979, 1983, and again in 1992.
The public health functions that were most benefited in the 1980s were assessment and policy development.
