They go on to describe methods appropriate for gathering data for assessing needs and for causal analysis. The presentation of the framework, the coverage of several approaches for analyzing data, the balanced description of qualitative and quantitative methodologies and the multiple case studies and examples will enable students and practitioners to conduct needs assessment in fields such as health care, psychology, sociology, education, public administration and urban planning.

Useful case studies and examples demonstrate successful methods for conducting needs assessments.
