A problem statement is
often written as a research
question. Limit the problem
statement to one sentence.
Example: Is going to
college worth the time and
“Obamacare” medication limitation cause
unnecessary exposure to potentially
irreversible health conditions impacting the
quality of care and life.
Are we compromising our current health
condition by enrolling in medical plans
sanctioned by AHA?
Evidence suggest that patients under medical
treatment prior to enrolling in coverage
produce by AHA, may be required to jump
hurdlers; severely compromising their already
vulnerable condition/s ,perhaps inducing long
term effects and/or death.
Operational definition
Develop operational
definitions for two abstract
concepts in the problem
statement that you believe
are measurable and subject
to change under different
conditions. Create the
operational definitions so
another researcher can
understand and assess
your definition of the
abstract concepts. Limit
your definitions to one
sentence each.
Example: For purposes of
this study, schooling is
defined as the number of
completed grade levels in
An operational denition is an explanation of an abstract
concept that is specic enough to allow a researcher to
assess the concept.
For the purpose of this study, “limitations” are
dened by the amount of potential alternative medications
that a single individual must take prior to being approved for
their requested treatment.
For the purpose of this research, “alternatives” will be
