Data Analysis for Development
Oxford University Press, 1985 - Developing countries - 142 pages
Exploring the nature of applied data analysis, this book illustrates the use of statistical techniques in analyzing policy problems. These techniques are appled to real development problems in Pakistan to demonstrate the usefulness of data analysis in development. Students, economists, and professional policy analysts will discover that, as the author himself says, "Whatever one's political or ethical values, one can make better decisions by having statistical results."
