Question description

When collecting data, it is important to be aware of the types of data being collected for further analysis: 

  • Give 3 examples of qualitative data and 3 examples of quantitative data that would be found when researching any of the following criminal justice topics:
    • Corrections
    • Juvenile justice
    • Victimology

Wording surveys, polls, and questionnaires can be tricky to ensure that the individual responding understands the questions presented. For example, asking an individual whether he or she owns a car could lead to various results depending on whether owning a car means paying the loan on the car versus the entire car being paid off. Also, does this imply owning trucks as well?

  • Give an example of a question that might be found on a survey, poll, or questionnaire that could lead to incorrect or confusing results.
  • Graphs are very useful in visualizing data. Give an example of a type of data that would be appropriate for each of the following:
    • pie charts
    • bar charts
    • line charts

Suggestions for Responding to Peer Post

  • Look at the data examples that your peers provided. If you were to develop a purpose statement for the data they found, what would it be?
  • What other questions might appear on the questionnaire that are related to the example that they gave?
