MODEL ANALYSIS AND STUDIES INCLUDE ANALYSIS OF THE USEFULNESS OF A MODEL THAT INDICATES THE IMPACT OF CRIME CONTROL ACTIVITIES ON REPORTED CRIME, A STUDY OF THE DISTRIBUTIVE EFFECTS OF JUROR SELECTION UNDER TWO GENERAL SELECTION PROCEDURES, AND AN ANALYSIS OF TIME SENTENCED FOR A SAMPLE OF NORTH CAROLINA OFFENDERS AS A MEASURE OF THE SERIOUSNESS OF RECIDIVIST CRIMINAL ACTIVITY.
