Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

This course provides an introduction to several methods for analyzing policies and situations that require a policy response. The methods considered-systems modeling, queuing modeling, benefit-cost analysis, decision analysis, multi-criteria analysis, urban and regional analysis-are widely used by planning practitioners and policy analysts (e.g., economists, budget analysts, public administrators, and civil engineers) and embody modalities of thought that often structure the ways that issues are framed for public discussions and policy decisions. Students who complete this course satisfactorily will obtain working knowledge of the methods considered, and become educated consumers of studies in which these methods are employed. CRP 3210 is a "second course" in quantitative reasoning, meaning that students should have a good command of high school algebra and have successfully completed courses in introductory statistics and principles of economic analysis.
