Leon Page is speaking at an AQMeN (Advanced Quantitative Methods Network) event: Using the Scottish Crime and Justice Survey 2008/09 on 6th June in Edinburgh.
This course will provide a detailed introduction to the Scottish Crime and Justice Survey, a large-scale national survey of crime victimisation carried out in Scotland. It will include the background to the survey, why it is important in policy terms, and the design and methodology of the survey. Following a recently prepared User Guide for the 2008/09 Survey, it will include practical, hands-on analytical experience of using SCJS datasets. It is not an aim of the course to teach statistical techniques, although several different analytical approaches will be demonstrated.
