Girl Scouts: Who We Are, What We Think

By Sylvia J. Brown, Ph. D.; Michael Conn, Research and Evaluation Analyst. (New York, N.Y.: Girl Scouts of the USA, 1990). (Executive Summary, 15 pp.)

In 1990 Girl Scouts of the USA commissioned Louis Harris and Associates to survey current Girl Scout members with the objectives of answering the following questions:

The study was conducted with a nationally representative sample of nearly 1,300 Junior, Cadette, and Senior Girl Scouts (middle and high school Girls Scouts), and an additional over-sample of about 450 girls designed to give perspectives of Girl Scouts of various racial/ethnic groups.

The findings from this study underscore Girl Scouts of the USA's ongoing efforts to develop creative program and membership initiatives designed to reach out to all girls, and help improve their lives.
