Imagine that you are interested in conducting research in one of the following areas:
Family relationships; Poverty; Education; Military; Popular Music; Facebook
Using Figure 2.3 of your textbook (page 59) as a guide, explain the details of a sociological study that you would like to conduct in this area. Be sure to include:
The question you would like to investigate (see page 45).
The hypothesis you would like to test. Or if you would not use a hypothesis, explain why.
What research method you would use and why.
If appropriate, what your dependent and independent variables would be. (And if you would like an extra challenge: explain how you would operationalize these variables.)
What your population and sample would be.
Please use (and cite) as many ideas from Chapter 2 as are relevant to your proposed study.
I will upload the book chapter later.
