Part I: Background

• Describe your chosen population segment. 

• Explain one major social issue facing your selected population segment. 

o Provide statistics and background data to document the social issues facing your selected population segment. 

• Analyze the social and cultural factors contributing to the social issue. 

o What are the political, economic, legal, practical, and ethical aspects of the issue? 

o What are the multiple levels contributing to and/or perpetuating the issues (i.e., individual, group, and societal levels)? 

o What are the personal, professional, and ethical implications on the society? 

• Relate two sociological perspectives to provide context for your selected population in order to explain their most significant challenges faced by that population. 

o Apply data from your research to support your claims about the challenges. 


Part II: Research Proposal

Propose a statistical research project that directly relates to the social issue you identified for your selected population.

• Create a plan to conduct your research study, describing in detail what you want to measure and why. Below are a few points to include:

o Who would be involved? 

o What would be a realistic timeline for completing your proposed project? 

o How many people would be needed to conduct the research project from a staffing perspective? 

o Which statistical analysis method (e.g., statistical tests/measurements) would be most appropriate for your application? 

o How many subjects would you require for your study? 

• Evaluate the importance of your proposed research study, and describe how the resulting data could best be used and which organizations or agencies will benefit best from it.
