Completing this S.B.A would not have been an easy task if done by myself.

Lastly but by no means least I thank God for allowing these people to be here and giving me the patience and strength to achieve full success.

Statement of the Problem

Generation gap - a real problem or just a human figment?

Method of Investigation
The Researcher has chosen to use Questionnaires in order to collect required information. The questionnaires were printed in adequate number and were delivered to persons in the community in order for me to receive my data and analyze it. It consists of four (4) background questions, six (6) questions relating to the causes of the problem, three (3) relating to the effects of the problem and four (4) relating to solutions of the problem. This instrument of collecting data provided with me with the following advantages: It is very much a cheaper procedure.

Time that it took to collect data was fast.
It is a guarantee of identification anonymity.

Reason for Selecting the Area of Research

The reason the researcher chose the selected area is to find out more about The Generation Gap in the community. Then to try and solve this problem by suggesting solutions needed to help prevent this problem.

Procedure for Data Collection
In Aberdeen Heights there are approximately 100 households. I chose to print 20 copies of the questionnaire for distribution in the community. I went through the different methods of collecting data and found that a questionnaire was a better option for me collecting data. Specific houses were selected so that I could ensure a return of the questionnaires after being answered. These houses were given a time frame of 48 hours in order for completion and then be collected. In these households only 45 percent of them were adults and 55 percent were youngsters. Questionnaire
