For example, respondents may be asked if they have committed offences during a set period (often the past 12 months) and, if they have, how often. Self-report studies are conducted using self-completion ques- tionnaires or by interview (Jupp, 1996).

With its sample exercises it is extremely practical, providing a justification for ′cheap research′ -- research conducted without the need for new data collection.
