This book provides an up-to-date introduction to the fundamental methods related to planning and human services delivery. These methods aid planners in answering the following crucial questions about human activities within a given community: Who are they? (demographic analysis); What do they do? (economic analysis); Where do these activities occur? (land use analysis); and How are human activities connected spatially? (transportation analysis). This book brings these four pillars of planning methods together in an introductory text targeted towards senior level undergraduate and graduate students. Planning professionals will also find this book an invaluable reference.
