The topics and presentation style of Statistics for Criminology and Criminal Justice are targeted to students who have a basic background in algebra but who have little or no exposure to the study of statistics. The content is presented in a sequential fashion. It begins with descriptive statistics, moves into probability and distributions, and ends with bivariate hypothesis testing and an introduction to regression. Emphasis is placed on balancing thoroughness with ease of understanding and applications in order to show students the importance of statistics in the practice and study of criminal justice and criminology.
