These data, focusing on the effectiveness of legal service
programs, were collected by the Office of Legal Services under the
Office of Economic Opportunity. The data include information about each
agency, its budget, and the characteristics of its clients and
personnel. Evaluations of the agency's effectiveness and operation were
made by a visiting observer based on consultations with staff and
community members. Evaluative measures include community attitudes,
agency resources, and staff competence.

Scope of Study
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of
disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major
statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to
these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
Standardized missing values.
Performed recodes and/or calculated derived variables.
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
