Survey research methods by Floyd J Fowler( Book )

The fourth edition has been updated in four primary ways: it much more prominently addresses the growth of the Internet for data collection and the subsequent rapid expansion of online survey usage; it addresses the precipitous drop in response rates for telephone surveys, particularly those based on random-digit dialing; it offers new and expanded coverage monitoring the continued improvement in techniques for presurvey evaluation of questions; and it addresses the growing role of individual cell phone in addition--and often instead of--household landlines. Two new chapters, "The nature of error in surveys" and "Issues in analyzing survey data," further emphasize the importance of minimizing nonsampling errors through superior question design, quality interviewing, and high response rates. Key features: covers the expansion of cell phone use and legislation regarding them (this offers survey researchers guidance as to policy implications and practical application); expands the coverage of web-based and online surveys as well as the latest resources available to the beginning and expert researcher; offers in-depth discussion of non-response and sample size issues, especially as they relate to power; focuses on data analysis, especially with regard to bivariate and multivariate approaches. The author walks students and researchers through the various types of analyses one would do once the data are ready to analyze and provides a list of strengths and weaknesses for each of the different types of survey data collection, including the more recent web-based approaches. Includes updated references and survey examples that offer various levels of students and researchers other exemplary literature and models

Reducing residential crime and fear : the Hartford neighborhood crime prevention program by Floyd J Fowler( Book )

9 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Hartford project, an experimental effort to reduce residential burglary, street robberies, and fear of those crimes in an urban residential neighborhood, is described. Its most distinctive feature is its integrative approach in which police, community organization, and physical design changes were used to increase the willingness and ability of residents to control their neighborhood and reduce criminal opportunities. Implementation efforts are detailed in terms of: (1) closing or narrowing streets as a strategy for reducing outside traffic; (2) instituting a neighborhood police unit; and (3) creating area organizations to work with the police and initiate resident efforts to improve the neighborhood. The evaluation of the program contains an assessment of success factors including nelghborhood involvement and physical changes. The appendices contain the survey instruments, data collection procedures, supplemental data, and the resident survey interview schedule. Extensive tables and illustrations are also included.
