Praise for the First Edition !With [an] evolution in methods comes a tremendous need for books that synthesize and extend the usual statistical theory presentation to one suitable for application-oriented audiences. Washington et al.'s book provides an excellent and needed addition to this genre of texts. ! an excellent addition to a practicing transportation analyst's library as well as a perfect companion to a first-year graduate modeling or methods course ! this text adroitly fills a very important niche between practice and theory. ! I recommend it for most transportation analysts and believe it to be a good, solid addition to the libraries of transportation graduate students. --Journal of Transportation Statistics, Vol. 7, Issue 2/3, 2005 It is well done and well organized, and provides good coverage of all the essential elements of statistical and econometric methods and models applied to transportation ! I would highly recommend it to anyone engaged in transportation research. I suspect it will be the definitive text on statistics in transportation for some years to come ! I am pleased to have had the opportunity to read the book and look forward to using it in my work in the future. --Technometrics, November 2004 In a time when transportation organizations are gathering unprecedented amounts of data on all aspects of the transportation system performance, transportation professionals need to equip themselves with analytical tools that can adequately handle the uncertainty of that data. This book is quite timely in meeting that need. This book presents the reader with an extensive set of analytical tools that are particularly well-suited for transportation data analysis. ! an outstanding and unique contribution to the existing transportation literature. I have no doubt that the book will serve as an important resource for transportation practitioners and researchers, and will play a major role in improving the way in which statistical and econometric methods are currently employed in transportation research. The book is well-organized and well-written, and can serve as an excellent textbook for a number of graduate-level classes in transportation-related disciplines. --Journal of Transportation Engineering, September/October 2004 In summary, the book succeeds in providing a well-written, clear and concise explanation of an array of statistical and econometric methods. The content is presented in a lively and extremely readable manner that conveys a definite sense that the authors truly understand the psyche of the student body that comprises the bulk of the target market. --Maritime Economics & Logistics, (6) 2004
