Join the Department of Sociology for an insightful online methods seminar with Dr Réka Solymosi

Dr. Réka Solymosi is a Lecturer in Quantitative Methods at the Department of Criminology at University of Manchester. Dr Solymosi is a member of the Software Sustainability Institute and an Honorary Lecturer at University College London. Dr Solymosi focuses on making use of new forms of data to gain insight into people's behaviour and subjective experiences, particularly focusing on crime, victimisation, transport, and spatial research. Dr Solymosi is also dedicated to promoting data literacy in social science study and practice.

This introductory textbook takes a building-block approach that emphasizes the application and interpretation of statistics in research in crime and justice. This text is meant for both students and professionals who want to gain a basic understanding of common statistical methods used in criminology and criminal justice before advancing to more complex statistical analyses in future volumes. This book emphasizes comprehension and interpretation. As the statistical methods discussed become more complex and demanding to compute, it integrates statistical software. It provides readers with an accessible understanding of popular statistical programs used to examine real-life crime and justice problems (including SPSS, Stata, and R).

This online webinar is part of an open methods seminar series, hosted by the Department of Sociology, to find out more visit the Department of Sociology and follow us on Facebook.
