“Little Green Books Make a Difference”

Strong, diverse methods drive strong evaluation and research. With Little Green Books, our analysts can better support programs that improve educational and life outcomes for New York City’s youth and adults. Strong methods = program improvements = impacts we’re proud of!

“Rise of the Phoenix”

I entered my doctoral program completely unprepared to do social science research.  My advisor introduced me to little green books that helped me navigate my way through an alien landscape. Today I read through Nonparametric Statistics for a project.

Congratulations to our grand prize winner, who received 40 Little Green Books, and our honorable mention, who received 15 Little Green books, and thank you to all who participated in our contest.
