Applications of social network analysis( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its appearance in the 1930s in the form of sociometry, social network analysis (SNA) has become a major paradigm for social research in such areas as communication, organizations, and social mobility, to name but a few. It is used by researchers in a wide range of disciplines: like any mathematical approach to social research, social network analysis strips away the unique details of social situations to reveal, or model, the bare structural essentials. By doing so, it enables the researcher to identify similarities across widely disparate contexts, and so to benefit from the insights of many different fields of study. This major work is dedicated specifically to the applications of social network analysis in diverse fields of scholarship. Divided into four volumes, each of which opens with a contextualising introduction written by the editor, this collection aims to provide scholars from a wide range of disciplines with a comprehensive, touchstone resource on the topic

This is the first large-scale developmental study of delinquency in Canada based on police-reported data

Il s'agit de la première étude à grande échelle qui porte sur l'évolution de la délinquance au Canada et qui est fondée sur des données déclarées par la police

A prospective study of firearm deaths : the feasibility component by Sharon Moyer( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes exploratory research to examine the feasibility of conducting a prospective study on firearms deaths utilizing coroners and medical examiners to collect previously unavailable data on firearm deaths. The research was conducted over a three month period in Quebec, Alberta, and British Columbia. The intent was to collect information prospectively, i.e. at the time of the coroners' investigation into the firearm death. Specifically, the research aimed to determine the feasibility of collecting detailed contextual data on incidents and circumstances surrounding firearm homicides, suicides, and accidental deaths. The key data elements included firearm type, when the firearm was acquired, shooters' previous experience with firearms, firearm storage and ownership, demographic information on the victim, personal history, and factors contributing to the incident. Such data would be used to develop typologies of firearm deaths to further inform prevention policies and strategies. The report concludes with findings regarding the characteristics of homicides and suicides as revealed in the feasibility study. It also outlines specific recommendations with regard to conducting the main study
