Research Methods in Practice provides an innovative, state-of-the-art introduction
to research and analytical methods for postgraduate students. The coverage of the methods and concepts of contemporary research allow researchers and non-researchers alike to truly grasp the logic, and limits, of modern research as it appears in academic journals, government reports, and in the daily news. The textbook emphasizes the critical interpretation and practical application of research findings, and covers many cutting-edge issues and methods not found in other books, including:
" a more in-depth, contemporary focus on causation
" the logic and use of control variables with non-experimental data
" the use of visual path diagrams to better understand both causation and the use of control variables
" a fuller, more innovative treatment of quasi and natural experiments
" a focus on data collection for performance measurement
" a discussion of cutting-edge issues in sampling and survey research (such as the response rate problem in telephone surveys and the emergence of new methods for online surveys)
" an integrated treatment of qualitative methods that appears throughout the book and emphasizes the integration of qualitative with quantitative methods.Biografía del autor:
Dahlia K. Remler is Professor at the School of Public Affairs, Baruch College, and the Department of Economics, Graduate Center, both of the City University of New York. She is also a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research.
Dahlia has been in an unusual mix of disciplinary and interdisciplinary settings. She received a BS in electrical engineering from the University of California at Berkeley, a DPhil in physical chemistry from Oxford University―while a Marshall Scholar―and a PhD in economics from Harvard University. During the Clinton administration’s health care reform efforts, Dahlia held a fellowship at the Brookings Institution to finish her dissertation on health care cost containment. She then held a postdoctoral research fellowship at Harvard Medical School, followed by assistant professorships at Tulane’s and Columbia’s Schools of Public Health, prior to joining the faculty at Baruch. She enjoys comparing and contrasting how different disciplines see the same issues.
Dahlia has published widely in a variety of areas in health care policy, including health care cost containment, information technology in health care, cigarette tax regressivity, simulation methods for health insurance take-up, and health insurance and health care markets. She has also recently started working on higher education and media issues. Her work has appeared in the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, Health Affairs, the Quarterly Journal of Economics, the American Journal of Public Health, Medical Care Research and Review, and many other journals. She blogs on health care policy, higher education and other topics at DahliaRemler.com.
Dahlia lives with her husband, Howard, in New York City, where they enjoy the city’s theaters, restaurants, and parks―and Dahlia enjoys being a complete amateur dancer in some of the city’s superb dance studios.
