This practical, up-to-date text introduces students to the methodological tools public administrators and policy analysts use to conduct research. This lucid text offers an abundance of examples to illustrate methods and step-by-step instructions focusing on common research techniques, providing a sound foundation in model building, research design, measurement, and sampling. The statistical section of the book focuses on correct use and interpretation of commonly used statistics, including linear regression. The book's overall aim is to develop effective, efficient research skills among future public administrators so that they will be better policy makers and good administrators. It accomplishes this not only through providing a solid foundation in technique, but by developing an awareness of the ethical issues associated with conducting research and reporting findings.
