Have you ever come across the term social diagnostics? It is a process that makes it possible to investigate the real state of a given community, for example, to examine its needs. You can use different tools/methods to carry out a diagnosis. The recommended method varies according to the needs, age, preferences, and availability of the studied group and the extent of the diagnosis. Familiarize yourself with the lesson’s attachment, a multimedia presentation, for information on the different methods used in a diagnosis. Some of them are more formal, others less so. An important element of the diagnosis is a report containing the analysis of the obtained results. Making a diagnosis using informal tools does not usually require a detailed report. You can conclude continuously during the study or in a final evaluation. The use of formal tools such as a survey requires the collection of responses and the creation of a database. If you conduct the survey online using tools such as Google Forms or Survey Planet, the results will be compiled as responses and displayed graphically once the process is complete. Collecting the results and presenting them in a graphical form will allow you to draw conclusions and take appropriate steps as a result.
Your task will be to create a sample survey in Google Forms on the topic: The needs of young people in the X community.

The ability to make a diagnosis is one of the key competencies of young decision-makers. The chosen method depends on many factors. Well-collected data will help you draw the right conclusions from the analysis and thus make the right decisions regarding young people’s affairs.
