Welcome to our first installment of the 2015 data scavenger hunt!
First, here are some basics. For each eval tip in 2015, we will ask you to find certain data that has been uploaded to the YD Intranet. Post your answer as a comment. The first person to get it right wins. Everyone else with a correct answer will receive honorable mention. Everyone who comments will get an imaginary participation ribbon. What, you may ask, is the prize for winning this prestigious competition? Your name will be posted in the next evaluation tip as the "Data Scavenger Hunt Champion," and for one month you will hold the bragging rights for this title. If you are having trouble finding an answer or have a question, please feel free to leave a comment and we will do our best to help clarify anything. Answers will be posted in the following evaluation tip.
For this first hunt, we will go in search of data pertaining to one of the organization's strategic targets. Dorothy will be so proud - so extra brownie points for posting your answer!
One of our three strategic targets is that the 4-H participants in long-term programming will reflect the racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic diversity of the state. One of the first steps in achieving this goal is to determine the current racial and ethnic breakdown of our 4-H members. So, brave data searchers, find the following information:
- In 2013, what percentage of 4-H youth in your county were non-white? Hispanic?
- Bonus question: In 2013, what percentage of 4-H youth in your region were non-white? Hispanic?
