RESEARCHING THE EFFECTS OF CRIME ON COMMUNITIES

In APA format with at least 3 different refrences, 3-6 total pages in length.

You will first need to select a community with high or increasing levels of crime.

Select three peer-reviewed journal articles related to crime in your selected community to use for this Assessment.

In your analysis, explain the following:

1. In 2–3 pages total:

· Identify the research question in each article. 

· Provide an overview of the independent and dependent variables. 

· Explain the effects of your selected crime on the community studied. 

· Explain how the research findings compare to the existing body of knowledge. (Look in the discussion section of the articles.)

2. In 1–2 pages, explain the limitations of each study.

3. In 1–2 pages, explain the impact the research findings could have for policy and research.

COMMUNITY CRIME STUDY

APA format 2-5 pages in length, references where required

Choose a particular crime that is present in your community. Design a study to examine the effect of the crime on your community from both a quantitative and qualitative approach. Your study proposal should be 3–5 pages long and must include the following:

1. Briefly describe your community and the identified crime issue (prevalence, how long it has been as issue). Identify what is not yet known about the relationship between that particular crime and its effect on the community.

2. Formulate a research question that you could explore in a research study. Your question should be an extension of current research.

3. Select a population and a sampling technique to use for the research proposal. Describe the target population (including size of the population and other demographic and socioeconomic conditions, if known) and how you plan to sample it or whether you plan to use existing data.

4. Define your research variables (independent and dependent). Provide conceptual definitions of the key variables you need to measure.

5. Explain how you would measure each variable.

6. List survey instrument (if used): A list of survey questions that you would need to ask (if you plan to conduct a survey). If you choose existing data, be sure to provide evidence of reliability and validity and a description of the sample, concepts, and measures used in the original study. Also identify any limitations of the existing data.

7. Provide a description of mixed-methods approach taken.
