Book Description:

A tenure-track faculty position provides the opportunity to work collaboratively with many brilliant colleagues and students, share your ideas and experiences with others, and to make a contribution to your profession. I’ve always aspired to a career that provides the opportunity to engage in lifelong learning, and Penn State’s three-fold mission of teaching, research, and service has done just that…thank you Penn State for this wonderful opportunity and recognition!

I chose this book because it has been the engine for my professional development. The many statistical and econometric methods described in the text have helped me consider alternative strategies for collecting and analyzing transportation data. The concise explanations offered by the authors, along with the many clear applications linking the methods to transportation, are an invaluable contribution to the profession. I frequently rely on this text to inform my teaching and research. It is my hope that the knowledge that I have gained from using this text has translated into enhanced teaching and improved safety and mobility on the transportation network as a result of my research.
