Statistical Methods for Criminology and Criminal Justice - 2nd edition

Statistical Methods for Criminology and Criminal Justice (ISBN10: 0072518448; ISBN13: 9780072518443)
ISBN13: 978-0072518443
ISBN10: 0072518448

Summary: This is the only book that introduces students to the statistical methods of criminology and criminal justice and shows how they are actually used. Each detailed yet accessible chapter combines instruction in statistical analysis with investigations of key research questions in the field; for example, what are the causes of crime? Is arrest a deterrent to intimate partner assault? Do boot camps reduce recidivism? Useful at both the introductory and intermediate level ...show mores, the text contains in-depth coverage of descriptive statistics, including graphical displays of data and exploratory data analysis, along with bivariate and multivariate analyses. Emphasis is placed equally on calculation and interpretation.
New to This Edition :

  • Much more accessible for undergraduates: The second edition eliminates material that is too advanced and increases the number of practical, clear, step-by-step examples in every chapter.
  • Many more practice problems in each chapter: SPSS practice problems have been added, and a helpful new "how-to" SPSS Appendix means students do not have to purchase a separate SPSS workbook.
  • New chapter and chapter section titles: New titles clarify the specific Criminal Justice applications of the second edition's content.

Features :
  • This is the only book that specifically focuses on statistics in criminology and criminal justice.
  • The text contains in-depth coverage of descriptive statistics, including graphical displays of data and exploratory data analysis, as well as of bivariate and multivariate analysis of data with binary dependent variables.
  • Complex formulas are broken down into easy-to-understand steps, and rules are illustrated with simple and clear examples.
  • The authors offer an exceptional writing style, in a book that is both relevant and accessible.
  • Effective pedagogical aids include end-of-chapter exercises with sample problems and answers, chapter summaries, a glossary of key statistical terms and key statistical formulas, and a review of basic mathematics (in an appendix).
