Data Collection is an important aspect of any type of research study. Inaccurate data collection can impact the results of a study and ultimately lead to invalid results. Data collection methods for impact evaluation vary along a continuum. Chapter 3 Criminological Theory and Crime Explanation 35 MICRO-LEVEL ANALYSES Biological Explanation While it is true that many criminal justice students believe that the answers to crime understanding can be found in the social sciences, many others gravitate to these disciplines because of their previous inconsistent or modest academic success.
Survey research, as with all methods of data collection, comes with both strengths and weaknesses. We’ll examine both in this section. Researchers employing survey methods to collect data enjoy a number of benefits. First, surveys are an excellent way to gather lots of information from many people.

A group of experts exchange views, and each independently gives estimates and assumptions to a facilitator who reviews the data and issues a summary report. The group members discuss and review the summary report, 4/5(2).
RAND developed the Delphi method in the s, originally to forecast the impact of technology on warfare. The method entails a group of experts who anonymously reply to questionnaires and subsequently receive feedback in the form of a statistical representation of the 'group response,' after which the process repeats itself.
The Delphi method or Delphi technique (/ ˈ d ɛ l f aɪ / DEL-fy; also known as Estimate-Talk-Estimate or ETE) is a structured communication technique or method, originally developed as a systematic, interactive forecasting method which relies on a panel of experts.
The technique can also be adapted for use in face-to-face meetings, and is then called mini-Delphi or Estimate-Talk-Estimate (ETE). The Delphi method has proven a popular tool in information systems (IS) research [4,6,13,14,16,24,25,35]. Citing “a lack of a definitive method for conducting the research and a lack of statistical support for the conclusions drawn,” Schmidt  presented a stepwise methodology for conducting such studies.
