More than 4 weeks availability
This book focuses on the measurement and utilisation of quantitative indicators in the urban and regional planning fields. There has been a resurgence of academic and policy interest in using indicators to inform planning, partly in response to the current government's information intensive approach to decision-making. The content of the book falls into three broad sections: indicators usage and policy-making; methodological and conception issues; and case studies of policy indicators.
Cecilia Wong is Professor of Spatial Planning at the School of Environment and Development, University of Manchester and a chartered town planner. Her research interests include quantitative measures, socio-economic analysis, strategic and spatial planning and policy monitoring and evaluation.
