A basic text for statistical/quantitative analysis and research methods coursework, this is a problem-oriented book organized around a series of unique reference tables that simulate the problems public administrators routinely encounter and diagnose. The tables guide the reader to applicable statistical methods for solving problems, teaching both "what to do," and "how to do it."
