About this title

Synopsis:

The Third Edition of Meier and Brudney's Applied Statistics for Public Administration provides comprehensive coverage of the major statistical and analytical tools you'll need as a public manager. The book also fully meets the NASPAA standards for methodology in masters programs in public affairs and administration. In an easy-to-read, applied format, the book focuses on practical problems in the public management arena, and its step-by-step explanations help you replace anxiety about statistics with an appreciation for powerful quantitative techniques. Using problems, exercises, and examples taken from the public administration field, you, as a public manager, will see how useful statistics can be - now and in the future.
