Measures of crime
Select a crime and write a report addressing the following:
Summarize the statistics from the last two reporting years. Be sure to include demographic information such as ethnicity, race, age, gender, marital status, employment status, socioeconomic group, etc., and moderator variables related to the crime.
Examine the reliability and validity of these statistics. Are they accurate? Why or why not? Be sure to discuss how age, gender, race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic level are related to offending and representation in the criminal justice system.
Explain whether certain populations are overrepresented in the statistics. If so, why?
Use the textbook and peer-reviewed sources to support your arguments.
Write a 2–3-page report in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
