A Beginner’s Guide to Statistics in Criminology and Criminal Justice Careers

 

Statistics for Criminology and Criminal Justice, Second Edition is an introductory statistics text for undergraduate criminology and criminal justice majors. The topics and engaging presentation style are targeted to students who have a basic background in algebra but who have had little or no exposure to the study of statistics. The overarching goals of the book are to demonstrate to students that statistics used in criminal justice can be enlightening and eye-opening and, that pre-conceived notions of their academic inadequacies coming into the course are false.

 

The fully updated Second Edition includes new learning objectives and learning checks to help guide students through the material and ensure content understanding and retention. Coverage of the fundamental areas in statistics begins with descriptive statistics, moves into probability, and ends with regression to make the content easier for students to follow. By use of real data and research, emphasis is placed on balancing thoroughness with ease of understanding in order to show students the importance and relevance of statistics in their future criminal justice careers.

Review:

"The SPSS tutorials are excellent"--Carlos E. Posadas, Ph.D.

"Dr. Gau's Statistics for Criminology and Criminal Justice text is excellent...the book is logically organized, well written, easily understandable, contains relevant examples and end-of-chapter exercises, and uses SPSS."

--Ayana Conway, Ph.D.

"A nice textbook for criminal justice students who are new to statistics. It is thorough yet concise. The price is certainly likely to win over students. Well done!"

--Dr. Matthew D. Fetzer

"Authoritative yet, clear, succinct, and engaging. It covers all the relevant concepts, and it covers them well."

--Anthony W. Hoskin, PhD.

"The specific CJ examples help students to connect the material to something that is real. It becomes more than just a math problem and instead they see it as a way to answer a specific research question in the field. This book does that better than any others I've seen."

--Nicole L. Smolter

"I have already adopted this book, and I plan to continue using it. I have used at least four other statistics books over the years, and this one is superior."

--Brian Stults
