Create a community profile, analyze data and make recommendations to demonstrate the process
of community profiling and apply the knowledge and practice skills learned in this course.
Your community profile is expected to contain the following:
 Title page. This includes the name of the report, your name and student number, the name
of the course and the course number, your tutor’s name and the date.
 Summary. The key points contained in your profile. You may do this as a bullet list if you
wish.
 Acknowledgements. This is not essential but you may want to thank all of the people who
contributed to the profile, including the residents. Make sure that they agree to have their
names included.
 Contents page. Include all the headings and sub-headings, with the page numbers, so that
they can be easily found.
 List of tables (if any). Provide the table number, the name of the table and the page
number.
 List of figures (if any). The same for tables.
 List of appendices (if any). The same for tables although appendices are usually lettered
instead of numbered.
 Introduction. Identify the community and give a clear description of its location. You may
use maps, diagrams etc. for clarity. Provide a brief overview of why you chose this
community.
 Body of the report. This is the most important part of the profile. Provide details of the process used in gathering the information. This should include details
of your primary and secondary sources.
Present your findings and subdivide the body into appropriate sections according to topics.
However you can include additional information to enhance the profile.
You may wish to have a very brief introduction and conclusion for each section but this
may not be necessary. Throughout the body of your report you should make appropriate links between your
process/findings and what you learned in the course, e.g. what ethics did you have to be
aware of while conducting your research?
o Ensure that all of your sources are cited in text according to APA 7.
 Conclusions. These should follow logically from the findings outlined in the body of the
profile.
 Recommendations. These are your suggestions for action. You may have one or more
recommendations, but keep it simple. Consider what approach to community work is
recommended and what is a feasible course of action.
 References. Every source which appears in your report must appear in your reference list
using the APA 7 style of referencing.
 Appendices. These contain any copies of documents you may wish to include. You may
also want to include copies of the questions which were asked to residents or a chart of the
time frame in which tasks were completed.
 The details of your process for gathering information for your community profile
should include the following: What were your primary and secondary sources? What
methods did you use to gather data from your primary sources? What leadership skills did
you employ to access the information? How did your knowledge of groups and
communities assist you in completing the profile? What communication skills were
necessary? How was the model for planned change utilized? What were your key roles?
What professional values and ethics did you recognize as important when you conducted
your profile? What ethical conflicts, if any, did you experience?
Although our list of components and relevant questions is far from exhaustive, we anticipate
that you will use these as one of your guides when you begin your community profile:
 Demographics: What is the size of the population? What is the average age? Is it a younger
or older population? What is the ethnic composition? What is the gender composition? Are
there any special groups (disabled, minorities etc.)? Is the population growing or shrinking?
Are certain segments of the population growing or shrinking? What are the religious
affiliations, if any?
 Economics: Are there local employers? Is this group expanding or shrinking? Where do
people tend to work? Where does the community fall on the continuum of upper economic to
lower economic? Who are the major employers? Are there any dominant industries? What are
the employment prospects? What skills do people possess?
 Housing: What are the age, type and condition of the structures? Are there mainly renters or
owners? Does the housing contain basic facilities? Is there any overcrowding? How long have
most residents lived in the area?
 Politics: Who represents the community? How strong are political parties in the community?
Who holds the real power in the community?
 Facilities and Services: What health, education and religious facilities are located in the
community? Are these public or private? What services are offered in these facilities and what
is the condition of the structures? What public services are offered (police, fire, postal,
transportation, social services etc.)? Any civic centres, recreational and cultural facilities or
commercial facilities such as restaurants, shopping area, groceries, shops? Are there any clubs,
faith groups or voluntary groups? What services and facilities do they have to access outside
of their community? How accessible are these?
 Issues and Attitudes: How do people feel about living in the area? How do they describe their
needs? Do their needs match the available resources? Do they feel that it is a supportive
community? How involved are the residents in the community? Do they believe that they are
involved in the political decision-making? What influence do they have? What is their
relationship with other communities? What makes their community unique? What is their
attachment to the community?

Chapter # 1
Overview
The topic of Chapter 1 is an introduction to real estate principles. This chapter covers four important concepts for the real estate student. First, the real estate licensing in California is discussed, along with the real estate market. Second, the historical influence of real property is examined. Third, the difference between real property and personal property is spelled out clearly. And last, the chapter concludes by analyzing various methods of land description. These concepts are important because they may be on the real estate exam for licensees.
Key Concept from Chapter 1
I learned that real estate can be a profitable professional (p. 4). One of the reasons it can be profitable is because the compensation to agents is based on the sales price of the house. In California, real estate values are typically high, which translates into a high commission. The commission is always paid to the broker, but the real estate salesperson receives a portion. Many real estate agents are using social media to promote their services.
Key Concept from Chapter 2
The second thing I learned is that property owners have a “bundle of rights” (p. 5). It means they have control of certain things because they own the real estate. Generally, people view it as a bundle of sticks, with each one of them being a “right” the owner has. Their types of rights vary based on their level of ownership. For example, homeowners have the right to possess (live in) their houses – unless they rent out the house to tenants. In that case, the tenant now has the right to possess the house.
Key Concept from Chapter 1
The third concept I learned is the definition of real property (p. 6). There are four things that define real property: land, affixed to the land, appurtenant to the land, or immovable. These items “tests” are what separates real property from personal property. For example, a refrigerator can be moved out of the house, so it is considered personal property. However, a fence is permanently dug into the ground so it becomes part of the real property, along with the land and the house.
Summary
This was an interesting chapter and I learned a lot about real estate. Real estate has a long and colorful history in California. There are several types of land description methods, which will probably be on the state real estate exam. I know I will have to study some of the concepts further, such as the MARIA acronym of determining personal versus real property. In addition to the knowledge of concepts, real estate involves math calculations.

Management lessens a supervisor’s propensity to underreport the minor injuries that do occur by focusing on injury prevention.

Please respond to dewayne with 200 words
The ability of management and supervision to actively participate, comprehend our lowest-level employee difficulties, and be willing to adjust our behaviors/actions for the benefit of the organization is the most crucial component of all. Involving supervisors in safety initiatives helps them “buy into” the initiative, which increases program effectiveness. Additionally, making safety a key component of supervisors’ everyday responsibilities helps to establish safety as a routine practice. Supervisors must be aware of and follow the current safety strategy, according to management. Any changes to the safety plan must be known to supervisors, who must inform their group personnel as soon as possible. At the monthly safety meetings, supervisors should go over the modifications and the overall safety plan with their group personnel. A supervisor’s safety work orders should be frequently reviewed by management for repairs or enhancements, and this information should also be included in a supervisor’s performance review. The supervisor must prove to management that they are recognizing and addressing real safety issues. The entire success of the safety program will be influenced by the precision and efficacy of the safety work orders. One way to make sure supervisors achieve their safety objectives is through performance reviews. The quantity of reported injury claims should not be the only metric used by management to assess safety. Management lessens a supervisor’s propensity to underreport the minor injuries that do occur by focusing on injury prevention. Supervisors’ ability to perform their jobs safely will increase adherence to all safety regulations and decrease the amount of workers’ compensation claims.
