MCDOWALL: INTERRUPTED TIME SERIES ANALYSIS (PAPER)SIS (PAPER) (Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences)
'...this is the kind of exposition I wished I had had some ten years ago when venturing into the world of autoregressive, moving-average (ARIMA) models of time-series analysis...This monograph nicely lays out a method for assessing the impact of a discrete policy or event of some importance on behavior which can be continuously observed...If widely used, as I hope, it will save a generation of social scientists from the labor of having to learn this methodology the hard way...' -- Helmut Norpoth, State University of New York
