Public Health Ontario (2016). “Focus On: Logic Model—A Planning and Evaluation Tool.” Toronto, ON: Queen’s Printer for Ontario.
This resource, created by Public Health Ontario, provides a simple, clear definition of logic model and theory of change, as well as a clear description of logic model/theory of change components. Figure 3 in this resource provides an example of a logic model with nested outcomes at various levels of analysis (e.g., individual, family, organizational).
This resource can be used in the beginning stages of creating a logic model and/or theory of change, including developing a clear understanding of the distinction between the two. This resource may also help with the creation of theories of change for projects that work at multiple, nested levels of analysis.
