Description

Whether it is to understand the networks of individuals, the physical makeup of a household or
community, or to develop strategies for finding difficult-to-reach populations such as the homeless or
drug-addicted, applied researchers increasingly need to understand spatial methods. In this brief volume,
the techniques of network analysis, mapping, and finding hidden populations are explained in simple,
practical language. The authors describe when and how to use these techniques and offer numerous
examplesof how the methods have worked in community psychology, drug research, risk assessment,
and network analysis, among other settings.
