MEDIA REVIEWS

No more than a few books have been authored by Indian academics on the subject of quantitative techniques in social science research. Amidst this gloomy scenario, the book...instantly qualifies as a valuable addition. The author attempts to introduce quantitative techniques and familiarise readers with their application in the development sector. The task is laudable and the outcome, admirable....For those...who are eager to acquaint themselves with basic quantitative techniques, this book is a useful source. For those who specialise in the development sector, Singh's work is certainly indispensable.
