Question description

American Culture and Drug Abuse

Assume you are a member of the Family Research Council and have become increasingly concerned about the drug use by professional sports players. You set up a plan and conduct a survey on how people believe the American Culture (television, movies, magazines, and popular music) influences illegal drug use.  Your survey consists 2259 adults and adolescents from around the country. A consumer group petitions you for more information about your survey. Answer the following questions about your survey using the APA format for citation and writing.

  • What type of survey did you use and why? (Phone, mail, or interview)?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of the surveying methods you did not use?
  • What type of scores did you use? Why?
  • Did you use a random method for deciding who would be in your sample?
  • Which of the methods (stratifies, systematic, cluster, or convenience) did you use?
  • Why was the method more appropriate for this type of data collection?
  • If a convenience sample were obtained, consisting of only adolescents, how would the results of the study be affected?
