Hardbound. The use of mathematical models to support decision making is proliferating in both the public and private sectors. Advances in computer technology and greater opportunities to learn the appropriate techniques are extending modeling capabilities to more and more people.

At present, few safeguards exist to prevent model builders or users from deliberately, carelessly, or recklessly manipulating data to further their own ends. Perhaps more importantly, few people understand or appreciate that harm can be caused when builders or users fail to recognize the values and assumptions on which a model is based or fail to take into account all the groups who would be affected by a model's results.

Review:

January-February 1998 In summary, Ethics in Modeling does a good job of unveiling the ethical aspects of modeling and covers ethics from many angles. While most chapters would be beyond the grasp of the average undergraduate, they could make good background for a graduate seminar. The book is thought provoking and, at times, deeply philosophical. Anyone doing active modeling research would benefit by taking some time to dwell on these issues. -- T.G. Groleau, Bethel College, Indiana

March 1995 This collection of essays makes very interesting reading, reminding us of the ubiquity of modeling in our lives today and of the ethical considerations required of modelers and statisticians. --Journal of the American Statistical Association
