Statistical Analysis for Public and Nonprofit Managers
This is a comprehensive, clearly written guide to the use of statistical analysis in the management of not-for-profit organizations. The book emphasizes statistical models that use more than one variable and is unique in presenting multivariate statistics specifically with the public and the not-for-profit manager in mind. Examples throughout have been chosen to be relevant to the not-for-profit organization and each chapter contains several "real-life" illustrations of how statistical techniques can be used in actual practice. In addition to explaining statistical methods and techniques in detail, the author focuses on why statistics should be used and helps the reader obtain an intuitive grasp of the rationale behind the statistics.
