Drawing extensively from actual cases, Policy Analysis and Evidence-Based Decision-Making helps students develop the analytic skills necessary to advise government officials and nonprofit executives on a wide range of policy issues. The book provides succinct but thorough discussions of the key elements of the policy-analytic process, including problem definition, objectives and criteria, development of alternative policy options, and analysis of these alternatives. The text also integrates policy implementation into policy analysis, and it draws on insights from behavioral economics in discussing key aspects of policy analysis. The authors use realistic examples drawn from policy analyses conducted for clients in government and the nonprofit sector to illustrate all aspects of policy analysis.

Unlike other texts, Policy Analysis and Evidence-Based Decision-Making employs a pragmatic, heterodox approach to the field. Whereas most texts on policy analysis are anchored in microeconomics, emphasizing economic efficiency, this book takes a broader view. It emphasizes that the criteria analysts use to evaluate policy options are inherently flexible and can be defined differently depending on the values and ideological disposition of the analyst and his or her clients. Ultimately, the book shows how policy analysis combines argumentation and evidence to compare alternative ways of addressing a problem and to support the recommended course of action. The book achieves this by presenting foundational theoretical frameworks alongside actual cases and decision-making scenarios-this is a theme that runs throughout the text.
