Hello. Following my previous question, I wonder if there is a “bottom-up” approach to calculate the costs of crime, will there be a “top-down” approach?

You are so smart! Yes, another strategy to estimate the costs of crime utilizes a willingness to pay a “top-down” approach, which incorporates other elements such as fear of crime, constrained behaviors, and residual community costs. Cohen et al. (2010) present both top-down and bottom-up estimates for comparison purposes noting that the top-down approach is appropriate for estimating external or social costs whereas the bottom-up approach is more appropriate for estimating system costs. They found that preventing individuals from high-rate chronic offending would save more than $200 million (WTP costs) or more than $100 million (“bottom-up” costs) in costs imposed by their criminal behavior.

You may find more information with the below reference:
Cohen, M. A., Piquero, A. R., & Jennings, W. G. (2010). Studying the costs of crime across offender trajectories. Criminology & Public Policy, 9(2), 279-305.

Hi there. I found it is really impressive that telehealth is so powerful, far beyond my imagination! It turns out telehealth covers so many themes, including the telehealth modalities (e.g., video, asynchronous), clinical topics (e.g., chronic disease management), telehealth function (e.g., remote patient monitoring, consultations). Could you help me with its effectiveness? It seems impossible for me to summarize.

Hi there. While it sounds like data visualizations are so valuable, I wonder if there is any weakness about it that social workers should keep in mind?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
