Political participation; Rural development
Community influentials have long been of interest to researcher and practioner alike. This paper deals with both the theoretical and methodological problems of identifying informal leaders. The influentials of the three communities are identified, and their social demographic, community participation and attitudinal characteristics are scrutinized. Finally, the value of these comparisons, especially for the community development specialist, are examined.
