Designed for use by professionals and students in public administration and "not-for-profit" management, this is a comprehensive guide to the use of statistical analysis in the management of non-profit organizations. The volume emphasizes statistical models that use more than one variable and presents multivariate statistics specifically with the public and non-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. Because she stresses the logic of proofs and the limitations of results rather than the pure mathematics of statistical derivation, the volume is accessible to students and managers with only a limited statistical background.
