Shenyang Guo, PhD, is the Kuralt Distinguished Professor at the School of Social Work, University of North Carolina. The author of numerous articles on statistical methods and research reports in child welfare, child mental health services, welfare, and health care, Guo has expertise in applying advanced statistical models to solving social welfare problems and has taught graduate courses on event history analysis, hierarchical linear modeling, growth curve modeling, and program evaluation. He has given many invited workshops on statistical methods—including event history analysis and propensity score matching—at the NIH Summer Institute, Children’s Bureau, and at conferences of the Society of Social Work and Research. He led the data analysis planning for the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW) longitudinal analysis.



Mark W. Fraser, PhD, holds the Tate Distinguished Professorship at the School of Social Work, University of North Carolina where he serves as associate dean for research. He has won numerous awards for research and teaching, including the Aaron Rosen Award and the Distinguished Achievement Award from the Society for Social Work and Research. His work focuses on risk and resilience, child behavior, child and family services, and research methods. Dr. Fraser has published widely, and, in addition to Social Policy for Children and Families, is the co-author or editor of eight books.

In Risk and Resilience in Childhood, he and his colleagues describe resilience-based perspectives for child maltreatment, substance abuse, and other social problems. In Making Choices, Dr. Fraser and his co-authors outline a program to help children build sustaining social relationships. In The Context of Youth Violence, he explores violence from the perspective of resilience, risk, and protection, and in Intervention with Children and Adolescents, Dr. Fraser and his colleagues review advances in intervention knowledge for social and health problems. Intervention Research: Developing Social Programs describes the design and development of social programs. His most recent book is Propensity Score Analysis: Statistical Methods and Applications.

The first edition was a joy to read, this second edition improved upon the first edition with updated information and clarifies the methods, and discussions common in propensity score analysis. Worth the effort, time and money in reading this book.
