Abstract:

The key conceptual task was to isolate the essential characteristics of a community that would make it resistant to subversion in spite of the changes, problems, and dissatisfactions that are inevitable concomitants of modernization. The report is concerned with the development of instruments and procedures for measuring village investment. Data are presented relevant to the suitability of the Index of Investment as an intermediate criterion of program impact and to its practical utility as an operational data collection procedure.
