1. Read the article: "Racial Profiling: A Survey of African American Police Officers" (Barlow & Barlow, 2002). Using concepts from chapters 1-6 as the basis for your analysis, in a narrative format of 500 or more words, summarize: (a) the research problem, (b) the literature review, (c) data-gathering strategy, (d) any hypotheses, (e) the dependent and independent variable in one of the cause-effect relationships tested by the researchers, (f) how the dependent and independent variable were operationalized, (g) other variables that should have been measured and/or controlled, and (h) the key findings and/or policy issues.
2. "Racial Profiling: A Survey of African American Police Officers" research utilized a mixed-methods approach (i.e., quantitative and qualitative). Identify the quantitative aspect, the qualitative aspect, and explain the value of using this approach. Were there any discrepancies or unexpected findings between the two methods (i.e., did the qualitative data contradict or refute the quantitative data)?
