9781506326108: Statistics for Criminology and Criminal Justice

Statistics for Criminology and Criminal Justice, Fourth Edition offers students a practical and comprehensive introduction to statistics and highlights the integral role research and statistics play in the study of criminology and criminal justice. Packed with real-world case studies and contemporary examples utilizing the most current crime data and empirical research available, students not only learn how to perform and understand statistical analyses, but also recognize the connection between statistical analyses use in everyday life and its importance to criminology and criminal justice.

Written by two well-known experts in the field, Ronet D. Bachman and Raymond Paternoster continue to facilitate learning by presenting statistical formulas with step-by-step instructions for calculation. This "how to calculate and interpret statistics" approach avoids complicated proofs and discussions of statistical theory, without sacrificing statistical rigor. The Fourth Edition is replete with new examples exploring key issues in today’s world, motivating students to investigate research questions related to criminal justice and criminology with statistics and conduct research of their own along the way.

About the Author:

Ronet Bachman, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice at the University of Delaware. She is coauthor of Statistical Methods for Crime and Criminal Justice (3rd ed.) and coeditor of Explaining Crime and Criminology: Essays in Contemporary Criminal Theory. In addition, she is author of Death and Violence on the Reservation and coauthor of Stress, Culture, and Aggression in the United States; and Violence: The Enduring Problem as well as numerous articles and papers that examine the epidemiology and etiology of violence, with a particular emphasis on women, the elderly, and minority populations. Her most recent federally funded research was a mixed-methods study that investigated the long-term trajectories of offending behavior using official data of a prison cohort released in the early 1990s and then interviewed in 2009.

Review:

"The book is clear and easy to follow.  All the material I would cover in my undergraduate stats class is presented in the book...When I teach both the undergraduate and graduate level statistics in the same semester this would be the ideal book to use.  I could use it for both courses just cover all of the material in the graduate level course.  That would allow me really to prep just one instead of two courses."

(Shelly A. McGrath)

"This is a very good statistics book; it is user-friendly, logically structured, and provides novel information that is not available in other comparable textbooks."

(Viviana Andreescu)

"Case studies provide interesting and relevant examples that make concepts easier to understand."

(Sara Z. Evans, PhD.)

"Good discussion of the basics of hypothesis testing (which can be hard to clearly convey to students)"

(Christopher J Sullivan)

"[Statistical Methods for Criminology and Criminal Justice is an] excellent introductory text to basic applied statistics. The authors did a successful job in blending theory and application in this textbook. The practical examples and exercises included in the text are very helpful to the students"

(Fawn T. Ngo)

"Detailed and systematic presentation of statistical concepts"

(Gary Sweeten)
