The purpose of this volume is to provide some illustrative examples of the analysis of real-world data drawn from areas as diverse as public policy, medical science, meteorology, and market research. For each case, two or more analysts worked independently in a simulated consultancy context. Each case study begins with a description of the questions at hand, the data sets available, and they then present in detail the analysts' solutions and conclusions.
