Statistics for Criminal Justice is an introductory statistics text for undergraduate criminology and criminal justice majors. The topics and engaging presentation style are targeted to students who have a basic background in algebra but who have had little or no exposure to the study of statistics. The overarching goal for the book is to demonstrate to students both that statistics used in criminal justice can be enlightening and eye-opening and, secondly, that pre-conceived notions of their academic inadequacies coming into the course are false. The content includes coverage of the fundamental areas in statistics, beginning with descriptive statistics, moving into probability and ending with regression. Emphasis is placed on balancing thoroughness with ease of understanding in order to show students the importance and relevance of statistics.ChaPter summary This chapter discussed some of the most common types of graphs and charts.
