The Handbook of Research Methods in Public Administration explores how systematic research methods could aid in understanding traditional questions in public administration as well as emerging theoretical and practical questions. This book offers encyclopedic treatment of research designs with case studies; surveys research designs used in public administration and relates these designs to analytical methods; and reviews robust examples of past research efforts addressed by research designs and analytical methods. A supporting Web site provides datasets, unpublished research examples, and actual published research articles. Innovative topics, including the Delphi method, are also covered.
