Developing coding systems to analyse difference (PLA Notes 47)

In an effort to increase public involvement in Government programmes to improve disadvantaged areas a Community Assessment and Action (CAA) programme was implemented. One of the key features of the CAA methodology is the use of coding systems, and this paper details the development and use of coding in community development schemes around the UK.
