Nalysis of Research on Death Row Inmates

Assignment 1: Analysis of Research on Death Row Inmates

Psychologists conducting research using historical and contemporary data must make sure that different demographic populations of offenders are not compared with each other. For example, when studying crime rates, much more information can be gleaned by separating male and female offenders, offenders from different age groups, and offenders from different socio-economic strata.

Using the module readings and the Argosy University online library resources, describe the strengths and weaknesses of research on death row inmates.

Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
