Summary:Introductory Criminal Justice Statistics is an essential tool for criminal justice departments and programs intent on creating strong quantitative components in their curricula. The author couples a sound pedagogical component with an applied focus, allowing students to gain an appreciation of the fundamental role that statistics play in laying the scientific groundwork of the criminal justice discipline. The text includes basic statistical principles and practices and increasingly builds on this foundation to demonstrate the primary analytical techniques. Students apply these techniques using a hands-on method as well as SPSS. By providing a meaningful context for the use of statistical techniques in the field of criminal justice, students learn how to interpret and write up their results. In addition, multiple-choice questions and SPSS project assignments give students the opportunity to employ their statistical knowledge and understanding of statistical reasoning.
