Criminal Justice Summer Workshops
The National Archive of Criminal Justice Data offers educational opportunities through its parent organization, the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR). ICPSR sponsors a Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research, which offers a comprehensive, integrated program of studies in research design, statistics, data analysis, and social methodology. The Summer Program offers courses during two four-week sessions, with instruction organized in lecture, seminar, and workshop formats.
BJS Workshop on Quantitative Analysis of Crime and Criminal Justice Data
An intensive seminar on Quantitative Analysis of Crime and Criminal Justice Data, sponsored by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, covers substantive issues addressed by a number of Bureau of Justice (BJS) datasets, such as recent reductions in crime and increases in imprisonment. Also evident in these datasets are methodological issues concerning new measures of criminal offending, reliable and valid instrumentation design, accuracy of event reporting, administrative record data sampling, missing data imputation, and standard error calculation for multistage sampling designs. Seminar sessions will focus on these substantive and methodological issues through the use of didactic lectures, discussions with guest speakers, computerized problem-solving exercises, and the development and execution of a research report using the available data.
All selected applicants receive stipend support from NACJD to offset transportation, course materials, and per diem expenses.
Application deadline is April 30, 2012.
