Anthony Altbeker about the limitations of data.... LOL

Postby Rudi » Fri, 2006-04-07 19:00

Conclusion in an article by Anthony Altbeker about "Recognising the
limitations of crime statistics" which can be found here:

http://www.iss.org.za/pubs/CrimeQ/No.14/No14.pdf

"This article has sought to show how the failure to
pay sufficient respect to the limitations of data
,
however seemingly solid, can result in quite serious
misjudgements about the level of crime
and,
indeed, the distribution of risk."

Talk about shooting yourself in the foot......
