1.12: Outputs

Logic model graphic with Outputs highlighted.

Outputs are the activities, services, events, and products that reach people (individuals, groups, agencies) who participate or who are targeted.

Outputs are “what we do” or “what we offer.” They include workshops, services, conferences, community surveys, facilitation, in-home counseling, etc.

These outputs are intended to lead to specific outcomes.

In some logic models, you will see activities separated from outputs; activities may be displayed before outputs. In those models, outputs are typically designated as the accomplishment or product of the activity… for example, the number of workshops actually delivered or number of individuals who heard the media message. The assumption is that the activity needs to be delivered as intended before the expected outcomes can occur. We see this as part of the measurement (quantity and quality of implementation) and as such is covered in Section 7.
