The science of criminal justice has seen expansive growth over the past decade, and new standards have been set by the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences. This book makes statistical concepts digestible using Microsoft Excel, the software most likely to be used in the workplace, versus more sophisticated packages.

Focuses on basic techniques, computations, and practical applications rather than on technical explanations and overly advanced techniques. Offers real and hypothetical examples throughout. Presents in each chapter a problem and solution that introduces the topic to be discussed, and defines and illustrates the relevant statistical procedures.

An accessible reference for novices as well as criminal justice practitioners.
