Abstract

The study investigated the extent to which the current 4-H program in Ohio is serving urban clientele in the counties. Eighty-eight counties were sampled using the 1980 Census Data, the Ohio 4-H Statistical Report, October 1, 1982-September 30, 1983 and the "Ohio Cooperative Extension Service - Local Needs Survey. The conclusions of this study are that six counties have 90% or higher urban population and a total of 31 counties have 50% or higher. This is a very strong negative relationship between the extent to which the county is urban and the percent of potential 4-H members reached. There is a low positive relationship between the extent to which the county is urban and the percent of females enrolled in the program.
