Summary

The edition of this comprehensive introduction to the basics of criminal justice research is substantially expanded and refined. The authors introduce simple research methodologies and proceed to complicated ones, describe elementary descriptive and inferential statistics, demonstrate research techniques, and examine the various scientific perspectives used in research. This approach encourages students to think critically about the research they encounter in their studies and also about the way they conduct their own research.

  • Includes new material on evaluation research, regression, correlation, the t-test, and one-way analysis of variance.
  • Assumes only an introductory acquaintance with math and statistics.
  • Review questions and exercises are provided at the end of each chapter.
  • The accessible, step-by-step approach teaches basic skills without overwhelming.
