This volume highlights the theory that decisions made during the design of a data collection instrument influence the kind of data and the format of the data that are available for analysis. Opening with a discussion on the selection of the data collection technique(s) and how this impacts on data processing and the data for later analysis, the book covers key issues such as: should you create your own instrument for a questionnaire? how do you test a questionnaire? what are the characteristics of good data processing? how to deal with missing data? how to scale an evaluation and create subfiles for analysis? In addition, each major section concludes with examples and when appropriate, directs the reader to commonly available computer software that can aid in data processing.

As one of the most highly respected members of the Indian judiciary whose contribution to the cause of humanity and to the growth of human rights jurisprudence has been very significant, author O. Chinnappa Reddy has faced thousands of court cases. In his new book, Humpty Dumpty with Alice in the Wonderland of Law, he shares his cheerful disposition with a collection of humorous short stories drawn from law reports of the last two hundred years. With over 120 pages, this collection of law reports discusses a wide range of topics – most are bizarre – spanning from Humpty Dumpty and the Law, The Case of Adam and Eve, The Case of the Playing Cards to The Case of the Black Dollar vs. White Dollar, The Case of the Racehorses and the Woman, and many more. Through these true law reports, readers will find themselves amused, informed, and thinking at the same time. They will find out that even from simple and oftentimes strange situations, the law still prevails.
