A national perspective is clearly essential in both research and planning. Only by recognizing the key role that has been assumed by the national community and the ways it interacts with and complements the local communities will we enhance the likelihood that national and local agencies will achieve maximum effectiveness in serving the needs of the population, in strengthening the community as a whole, and in ensuring its future by providing a firmer, more realistic basis on which to plan. To achieve this goal requires a national population survey at the same time as we continue our efforts to assess and plan for local surveys.
