This report is directed toward the majority of governmental (federal, state, and local) officials and their staffs who are confronted with the continuing task of selecting solutions and of making decisions in societal areas. The report is divided into 12 major chapters on models and model building. Each chapter is basically self-contained, with model concepts and terminology. The Guide is an attempt to present to a non-technical governmental-oriented audience an overview of what models are, and how they have been used in a number of important social-urban areas. It represents a source from which governmental officials and others can obtain an understanding of this approach to decision making.
