Moroni Benally
government, public administration, labor economics

Analytical Techniques for Public Service is a two-quarter course sequence for second year MPA students. Each quarter focuses on approaches to applied research in public administration, public policy and non-profits with an emphasis on issues relevant to governments. In the Winter, we respond to the following questions: 1) What are the various approaches to conducting social science research?   2) How do we analyze and interpret quantitative and qualitative data? 3) How do we turn data into information and information into decisions? 4) How do we present useful information?  Our intent is to gain a better understanding of how to approach, critique, use, analyze, and communicate research in public service.
