Kimberly Rainey January 24, 2018 CJUS 601-B02 /Dr. Dennis F1 M1 Original Thread Post Discussion Board 1 Survey Research Upon reading the course content this week titled Street-level Informal Economic Activities: Estimating the Yield of Begging in Brussels which was conducted by Stef Adriaenssens and Jef Hendrickx (2011) it helped me to have a better and more thorough understanding to mismeasurement of crime as a whole as well as the different aspects of the topic merely therein. One example to discuss is the standards of questions set to analyze and determine the actual amount of money that the beggars can actually make. The “standard” of questions enable the research to arrive at a more exact and definitive answer to their hypothesis and questions formed to conduct the research in a precise manner. Certain aspects of the study believed that the accuracy of the actual amount the beggars made held little to no standard due to the factors of the beggars not knowing themselves how much they actually made from no record keeping. Another factor merely concluded that the beggars themselves were not comfortable and open enough to share such information with other persons on the studies and research they were conducting. It is not ethical to conduct research and not repeat the study again to have more actual facts and something to compare the other to. Thus, the study conducted of the beggars of Brussels remained a very broad study and not exact nor definitive conclusions were made.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
