Knowledge and Public Policy: The Search for Meaningful Indicators

In this second, expanded edition of Social Indicators and Public Policy (Innes de Neufville 1975) the author
has added a preface that outlines the decline of social indicators in public policy but also makes a plea for their
reinsertion. She looks specifically at housing indicators and myths about U.S. housing as an example of the importance
of honest numbers in planning and public policy."
