Campus Sex Assaults: A Year-Long Investigation of Midwestern Colleges

Campus Sex Assaults: A Year-Long Investigation of Midwestern Colleges by Chicago Tribune StaffIn September 2010, St. Mary's College freshman Elizabeth "Lizzy" Seeberg was found dead, a victim of an apparent suicide from prescription medication, mere days after alleging she had been sexually attacked by a Notre Dame football player. Starting in November of that year, the Chicago Tribune began reporting on this case that was up until that point not publicly acknowledged by the University of Notre Dame. Over the course of the next year, Tribune journalists and investigators produced a series of articles focusing on this case—and the cases of other sexual assault victims on Midwestern university...

In addition to providing a detailed account of the problem, they describe twenty-four programs that have proved successful in changing the lives of seriously disadvantaged children.

Pension Reform and the Development of Pension Systems: An Evaluation of World Bank Assistance

Pension Reform and the Development of Pension Systems: An Evaluation of World Bank Assistance by Emily S. AndrewsFormal pension systems are an important means of reducing poverty among the aged. In recent years, however, pension reform has become a pressing matter, as demographic aging, poor administration, early retirement, and unaffordable benefits have strained pension balances and overall public finances. Pension systems have become a source of macroeconomic instability, a constraint to economic growth, and an ineffective and/or inequitable provider of retirement income.

Population-Based Survey Experiments

Population-Based Survey Experiments by Diana C. Mutz

Population-based survey experiments have become an invaluable tool for social scientists struggling to generalize laboratory-based results, and for survey researchers besieged by uncertainties about causality. Thanks to technological advances in recent years, experiments can now be administered to random samples of the population to which a theory applies. Yet until now, there was no self-contained resource for social scientists seeking a concise and accessible overview of this methodology, its strengths and weaknesses, and the unique challenges it poses for implementation and analysis.

Stat-Spotting

Stat-Spotting by Joel Best"If you ever scan the newspaper, watch the TV news, or surf the blogs, you should read this charming book. If you're a journalist, read it twice."â€Â"James M. Jasper "As we now swim in information, much of it bogus or biased, spotting dubious data is super important. In Stat-Spotting, Joel Best plays off the format of field guides to give readers good, common sense ways not only to sense bad data but to understand what's wrong. Broken up into short independent sections much like field guides to various flora or fauna, the book is easy and enjoyable to read. Easy, enjoyable, and valuable....

Afghanistan - State Building, Sustaining Growth, and Reducing Poverty

Afghanistan - State Building, Sustaining Growth, and Reducing Poverty by William ByrdAfghanistan has come a long way since emerging from major conflict in late 2001. The economy has recovered strongly, growing by nearly 50% cumulatively in the last two years (not including drugs). Some three million internally and externally displaced Afghans have returned to their country. More than four million children, a third of them girls, are in school, and immunization campaigns have achieved considerable success. The Government has supported good economic performance by following prudent macroeconomic policies and it has made extraordinary efforts to develop key national programs and...

Dataclysm: Who We Are (When We Think No One's Looking)

Dataclysm: Who We Are (When We Think No One's Looking) by Christian RudderA New York Times Bestseller

An audacious, irreverent investigation of human behavior—and a first look at a revolution in the making

Our personal data has been used to spy on us, hire and fire us, and sell us stuff we don't need. In Dataclysm, Christian Rudder uses it to show us who we truly are.

For centuries, we've relied on polling or small-scale lab experiments to study human behavior. Today, a new approach is possible. As we live more of our lives online, researchers can finally observe us directly, in vast numbers, and without filters. Data scientists have become the new demographers.

A Tale of Two Cultures: Qualitative and Quantitative Research in the Social Sciences

A Tale of Two Cultures: Qualitative and Quantitative Research in the Social Sciences by Gary Goertz & James Mahoney

Some in the social sciences argue that the same logic applies to both qualitative and quantitative methods. In A Tale of Two Cultures, Gary Goertz and James Mahoney demonstrate that these two paradigms constitute different cultures, each internally coherent yet marked by contrasting norms, practices, and toolkits. They identify and discuss major differences between these two traditions that touch nearly every aspect of social science research, including design, goals, causal effects and models, concepts and measurement, data analysis, and case selection. Although focused on the differences between...

Agents of Bioterrorism: Pathogens and Their Weaponization

Agents of Bioterrorism: Pathogens and Their Weaponization by Geoffrey Zubay

This new work offers a clear and thorough account of the threats posed by bioterrorism from the perspective of biologists. The authors examine thirteen disease-causing agents, including those responsible for anthrax, the plague, smallpox, influenza, and SARS. Each chapter considers a particular pathogen from the standpoint of its history, molecular biology, pathology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, weaponization, and defenses. The book also examines strategies for making vaccines and protecting the population in a bioterror attack.

The Right Decision (eBook)

The Right Decision (eBook) by James Stein

CAN YOU EVER BE SURE YOU'RE MAKING THE RIGHT DECISION?

Should you stay in a comfy job with little chance of advancement-or take a riskier one in which you could make lots of money but also wind up on the street?

Should you listen to a doctor who advises surgery-or trust another who tells you to wait and see if your condition improves?

Should you remain in a cozy relationship without much spark-or cut your losses and search for your soul mate?

Is there ever a "right" decision? Professor James Stein would argue yes, and in this provocative new book, he shows you how to apply the mathematical principles...

Handbook of Inter-Rater Reliability (Second Edition)

Handbook of Inter-Rater Reliability (Second Edition) by Kilem Li GwetThis book presents various methods for calculating the extent of agreement among raters for different types of ratings. Some of the methods initially developed for nominal-scale ratings only, are extended in this book to ordinal and interval scales as well. To ensure an adequate level of sophistication in the treatment of this topic, the precision aspects associated with the agreement coefficients are treated. New methods begin with the simple scenario of 2 raters and 2 response categories before being extended to the more complex situation of multiple raters, and multiple-level nominal, ordinal...

Statistical Power Analysis with Missing Data

Statistical Power Analysis with Missing Data by Adam Davey & Jyoti "Tina" Savla

Statistical power analysis has revolutionized the ways in which we conduct and evaluate research. Similar developments in the statistical analysis of incomplete (missing) data are gaining more widespread applications. This volume brings statistical power and incomplete data together under a common framework, in a way that is readily accessible to those with only an introductory familiarity with structural equation modeling. It answers many practical questions such as:

  • How missing data affects the statistical power in a study
  • How much power is likely with different amounts and types of missing...

The New Worlds of Thomas Robert Malthus: Rereading the "Principle of Population"

The New Worlds of Thomas Robert Malthus: Rereading the "Principle of Population" by Alison Bashford & Joyce E. Chaplin

The New Worlds of Thomas Robert Malthus is a sweeping global and intellectual history that radically recasts our understanding of Malthus's Essay on the Principle of Population, the most famous book on population ever written or ever likely to be. Malthus's Essay is also persistently misunderstood. First published anonymously in 1798, the Essay systematically argues that population growth tends to outpace its means of subsistence unless kept in check by factors such as disease, famine, or war, or else by lowering the birth rate through such means as sexual abstinence.

Challenging the widely held...
